Well I changed this section, thanks to
comments and help from a person who saw this site. For whatever reason I could
not get my ball rolling until another coder made some comments. - Thanks
Click to see the list of words that
begin with the letter below
If a work starts with a "K"
sound then it is probably a command. "Asow" is food but "Kasow"
If a word ends in a "P" sound it is probably a past
tense. "HaQuin" is birth but "HaQuip" means born.
sentence ends with TaWaa it means it is happening right now. "Paul Asow"

I had a huge problem producing
sounds. Everything was working and then it just stopped. I guess they changed
Some visitor, to the site, urged me on and I got it working again. You can hear
the words by clicking on the buttons that will be displayed on the next page.
I have only one directory that
contains all the words. The software picks up the range of words that are selected.
Now I can record a word and copy them to one directory and the web page writes
itself. This is all very clever if I do say so myself. The magic is in the name of the sound
file. There is a dash that separates the English from the Indian. So I can name
a file like:
My program breaks the letters at the
dash. The first half becomes the English definition and the second half becomes
the Indian. My program is named "list2.htm," that uses a lot of
Java. The neat thing is that there is only one "list2.htm." When you
make your choice of the words the program runs out and loads in the words and
then writes itself. It reads the directory and then uses that information to write the web
It is possible to get those fancy linguistic accent marks also. You
need to read two letters in at once and have a conversion to the fancy symbols.
I don't use them because most normal folks don't know them. This is a folks site
and I am not a linguist.
I have chosen to use AU files rather than
WAV because AU is native Internet and they are smaller than WAV files.
