Hi all,

I made a webapp to see foreign language words in context.

www.subasub.com

You are able to search for a specific word in a huge collection of dialogues from movies.
This way you can see the usage patterns of a word, which is usually a lot more than what a
dictionary definition could convey.

It's pretty new and there are probably a couple of rough edges and lots of features that
could be added. Still, I would be very happy to get some feedback from you guys, or maybe
requests for languages that you would like to see included. :)

Cheers,

Larion

EDIT:

One feature I've been thinking of is an export function to Anki with fill-in-the-gaps style
flashcards. I actually used flashcards that way anyways (while learning Dutch at least) to
get more of a feel for the way words are used.

I like it! I tried the Dutch version and it looks very good. I'll put it to a much longer
test. Thanks very much.

I've tried a few words here in there, and at first glance it seems to be a great tool!! I
like to see words in contexts when I study them, and it's true that it's not always easy
to find tool for them, especially when learning various languages. Thanks a lot! I'll
recommend it to my students!

Thanks, I am actually just figuring it out whether there is any demand for this tool. If not,
I can still use it for my own language learning endeavours :)

Update: I added support for basic translations. You can choose between English, German, Dutch,
French, Hungarian, Spanish and Italian. It is not perfect, but still it can help to give you
some basic idea to understand the dialogues. It can be turned off in case you want a more
immersive learning experience.

Also you can know search for complete phrases, not only single words (well you could actually
do that earlier too, but it didn't work that well). A particular use case would be to learn
English phrasal verbs or other idiomatic expressions.

Thanks again for all the positive feedback :)

News since last year:

Now the texts are in parallel so you can select a language pair, search for a word and see
the
dialogues in both languages. Here is a picture:



There are two new languages that I added last week:
Portuguese and
Russian.

Also it is now possible to hear the words by clicking on the sound icon.

Happy to hear what you think and any suggestions/ideas/criticism.
