SEAlang Library Ilocano Dictionary

About the SEAlang Library Ilocano Resources 
Ilocano is the third-most common language in the Philippines, with more than nine million speakers.  SEAlang's Ilocano dictionary is based on Ernesto Constantino's Ilokano Dictionary (1971). It contains about 7,150 entries, including heads and subheads, and nearly 2,500 bitext sentence examples.
    Constantino usually (but not always) provides a single gloss for one or more affixed forms.  The root form / affixed form link is not always explicit, but examples - and, hence, entries - will be found by automatic fallback in regular searches.
Search for padanum then try the different display settings:
-- self shows the item,
-- self/parent shows the item and its root, danum.
-- family adds other derived and/or compound forms as well. You can get the whole family by searching for the root as well.
Note also the examples checkbox (in the menu), and buttons:
-- local shows examples that were found under this head.
-- remote shows examples that were found under other heads (shown in bold).

Searches may:
-- include an asterisk -- * -- as a wildcard that matches any number of characters; asterisks may appear in any position. 
-- require matches for both, or either, Ilocano text (of the headword), or English text (in the definition).
-- be expanded to return the root form, or of all inflected forms that share the same root.
-- be limited to particular part-of-speech.
-- finally, the English search term can be expanded (default) to include inflected forms (a search for sing matches sings, singing, sang, sung as well).
