I have an ambition to launch online specialized dictionaries and/or glossaries, or more correctly, to collect such dictionaries “under one roof.” To this end, I launched a site with a suitable domain name (termbank). Now, I launched my first dictionary online: I uploaded a great part of my English Turkish Dictionary of Psychology originally published by Bilim ve Sanat YayÄ±nlarÄ±, Ankara in 2000. It has 3 reprints since then, and I guess that it will be reprinted for the 4th time in 2007. With more than 9,000 entries, it is the most comprehensive Psychology dictionary currently available in Turkey.
And, with some 5,000 entries, the online version of my English Turkish Dictionary of Psychology is one of the largest online dictionaries on Psychology on the net. I am planning to add another 3,000 entries until a new edition is published as a paperback.
I also added a lookup option for remotely querying the dictionary. By adding a few lines of lookup code on their pages, webmasters can offer dictionary lookup to their own visitors. The search box functions in both languages, i.e., users can search both in English and Turkish (definitions are only in Turkish). I am also planning toÂ include an option for user contributions whereby users can contribute terms/definitions to the dictionary, or suggest improvements/corrections.
I hope that visitors will find my online dictionary useful.
