Modern Kalusa Usage
Section Two - Kalusa to English
This dictionary includes all the words found at least three times in the known corpus of the Kalusa language, and is hyperlinked to sample sentences drawn from that corpus. In this way the student of Kalusa will be able to see, not only the dictionary definition of the word, but how it is used in context. The sentences are drawn from the corpus with preference given to the most recent samples for each word. In this way the samples are bound to reflect the most current customs and usages in Modern Kalusa. As time goes on and more sentences are added to the corpus, they will displace the older, dated and obsolete usages and definitions, which will tend to fall away and no longer appear in the concordance.
This dictionary is divided into two sections. Section One is the English to Kalusa dictionary, and Section Two is the Kalusa to English dictionary. Home
