That belongs in a dictionary well-stocked with examples.

Which makes me wonder if there is a nice pretty way to add examples to the current dictionary... Doesn't appear to be... I mean, we could, but it would just look like each word has a massive definition.

There was a brief discussion in the dictionary thread about that and I believe William showed part of an entry how he imagined it.

I would very much like to see that. Especially with more and more intricate grammatical features that are unfamiliar to people it’s a good way to check up on the usage (something that dict-navi.com tries to achieve over time with example sentences). It’s a messy work but in the end I think we all will gain from it. Not every entry needs an example, mind you but with verbs, I think, it’s essential.

`Eylan Ayfalulukanä:
I know of what example you refer to, and it is impresive. Wm Annis's suggestion for an alternative dictionary format is awesome. I am also working on adopting something similar for the Dothraki dictionary.
