About dictionary codes in Edict

Postby Milmi » Wed 12.06.2006 10:48 am

Ok, the code list is in here and it contains most of the dictionary codes. I wrote most because once in a while you come across codes that are not in the list.

For example code adv-to, as in
沁み沁み 【しみじみ】 (adv-to) (uk) earnestly; keenly; fully; heartily; seriously
What does it mean? Is it something like you have to attach と to the end of the word when used in a sentence (like in this ALC entry)? Then, why isn't the code in the code list or why the entry isn't just
沁み沁みと 【しみじみと】 (adv) (uk) earnestly; keenly; fully; heartily; seriously


There are bunch of other not listed codes, too, but of course I can't remember them right now.

Basically, yes. By the way it's _Jim_ you should be telling this, not us.
