After looking at the various possible Chinese characters to choose from for the translation for "to boil", I decided that it was time to start supporting alternate Chinese characters in the database. I'm not totally sure I love the implementation that I chose for it, but it's a start.

New translations, all food related:

  • salty
  • sweet
  • fried rice
  • jujube
  • to pan fry
  • to stir fry
  • to brew
  • to make coffee
  • to make tea
  • leftover

I'm back from vacation! I know, I've been on sabbatical this whole time, but I'm back from my vacation during my sabbatical.

I split out the translations for he, she, and it into separate words, since they're separate words in english. I also modified some sentence translations in the database. I learned that you can use 在 do6(7) to say that you are currently doing something. I don't think it's absolutely necessary, and you can use context and still omit the word, but for the sentence flashcards I'll try to be more proper.

New translations:

  • not
  • cabbage
  • to boil
  • to cook rice
  • She is watching TV
  • He is already asleep
  • I have already eaten

Exciting new update!! I've enhanced the Search feature so you can now search via Peng'im. This was kind of tricky, and I didn't really make it support everything, but you can type something in like "gio" to see all the words that have that in the Peng'im. You can also include the number, but this only really works with base tones, not changed ones.

And some new translations:

  • rice (uncooked)
  • rice vermicelli
  • to walk
  • to think

I made a small tweak to how some extra information is displayed. Sometimes there are multiple ways of saying a single word in english, like with the word aunt. Each entry has some extra information below the Chinese characters and Peng'im. But sometimes I need to add clarification when there's only a single entry, like for the word fly or pound because you could interpret those words a different way in english. I moved that extra clarifying note righ next to the english word itself.

I also added more translations:

  • done
  • not yet (which is on the page for no)
  • to look for
  • difficult
  • Have you eaten rice yet?
  • I did not finish eating yet

The English word page now shows synonyms! So if you look at the page for must, you'll see the synonyms "have to" and "need to". When you search for a word and it matches a synonym of a word in the database, it'll show up in the search results.

I also improved an annoying UI thing. When viewing flashcards on desktop (or just, larger window sizes) and the text is very long, it could make the page stretch horizontally, causing a scrollbar to appear. Turns out this was a bug in Bootstrap and I just needed to update to a later version.

New translations:

  • fly
  • to wipe
  • toilet paper
  • pound
  • far
  • quite
