For ming-a-ling 0.6.5Publisher's description


ming-a-ling is a Browser software developed by dustin wehr. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for ming-a-ling:

Edit by Brothersoft: Slightly-longer summary:
Helps you learn the vocabulary of a foreign language. You add words and phrases in your language, and when they appear on the pages you visit, they're replaced by Google's translation into the foreign language. Hover your cursor over a translated phrase and a tooltip will popup that tells you the original.

Instructions and verbose description:
Here's an example. After you install ming-a-ling, you Highlight "sentence" in this sentence, then right click and select "Add phrase". Since this is the first time you've used ming-a-ling, you'll be asked to choose a "source language" (the one you already know) and a "target language" (the one you want to practice). You can change this later. Let's say you choose English as the source language and Spanish as the target language. ming-a-ling sends "sentence" to Google, shows you what Google says the Spanish translation of "sentence" is ("frase"), and then asks for a confirmation. Click ok. Now every occurrence of "sentence" on this PaGE will be replaced with "frase", in bold. If you hover your cursor over one of those bolded occurrences of "frase", a tooltip will show up with the word "sentence".

Ok here is the main hypothesis and Hope: often enough, when "frase" occurs in a sentence you're reading, the context will be enough to remind you of what it means. And then you've done a tiny bit of solid practice. The association between "frase" and "sentence" in your brain becomes a tiny little bit stronger. That's the theory, anyway.

Disclaimer: ming-a-ling Currently does not try to do word sense disambiguation. For example, it would translate "bark" the same way in the sentences "That dog has an annoying bark" and "The tree's bark is sticky". Eventually it will be good at this! Or good enough that it's not a major complaint. Until then, you might want to stick to practicing words and phrases that do not have two (or more) meanings that are both commonplace and unrelated.
