Dictionary converter and irregular inflections

Hi,

Does anyone know how to contact whoever wrote the dictionary converter? I've been creating XDXF files out of some dictionaries, and so far I've failed to implement verb conjugations. In Spanish there are about 200 irregular verbs with about 50 conjugations each, so it's a bit of a problem.

My goal is that when you search for a verb form other than infinitive, it will get you the definition for the infinitive verb. This can be done with the morphems file for regular verbs, but irregular verbs are a bit trickier. I tried adding all irregular forms to the morphems file, but the converter.exe ignores entries after certain point fi the file is too large.

I also tried using the logical format of XDXF, which deals with this kind of things, but it seems that converter.exe supports only very basic XDXF, so that didn't work either. I have attached a manual for logical XDXF, as found in http://xdxf.revdanica.com/drafts/logical/download/

The other option is include one entry per each non regular form of each irregular verb. I'm do have a list of irregular verbs conjugations, but I'm not going to start separating the irregular forms from the regular ones, and at about 50 conjugations per verb, it means the dictionary would have an extra 10,000 entries just for that. Not the best solution really ^_^

Anyhow, if anyone has any idea on how to feed this kind of information (any kind of irregular inflection) to the converter, please let me know.

Thank you very much!

That you very much, but the es-en dictionary has the same problem as the one I'm trying to make, i.e. can't find irregular inflections. If you look for "tuvo", you'll see you don't get "tener" back.

I sent an email to info@pocketbookreader.com and got no answer either. I'm going to send an email in English to service@pocketbook.com.ua and see what happens.

I haven't received any answer from any of the support emails (English, Russian or German), not even to acknowledge the email.

I am pretty disappointed

Welcome to the club, they really do not care about the dict thing.
There are many posts to get some more languages done, so we need the morphems. But nobody cares, in the russian forum nobody cares. U can not access (Download) 99% of bookfast.org (lot of dicts there) nobody cares.
