`Eylan Ayfalulukanä:
Will the links to the various dictionaries remain the same? And can you add those to your first post here?

Congratulations on taking over this task. Taronyu picked two very capable people to carry on this extremely important task.

If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. (I still would like to see modal verbs marked as such  ;) )

Tirea Aean:
As far as I know up to this point in time, the current structure stands until further notice. :)

Txonä Unil Stä'nìyu Rolyusì:
I am also happy to help if needed :) One suggestion I have is that stress be marked as well. Just with an underline or something, that'd be cool :)

It's already marked with the IPA standard for syllable stress. It's just really hard to distinguish it visually from the ejective consonants.

atxkxe [at'.ˈk'ɛ] n. Land = atxKXE

I wonder if it's ideal to be relying on IPA? Granted, I don't think we should move away from it in general, but the stress marking specifically really is confusing for the uninitiated. If the ejectives were marked differently then it would not be so messy (tì’efumì oeyä).

Tirea Aean:
I'm not sure if underlining all the words in the right spot is good presentation. also, it would take a while. I totally hear ya on the IPA for stress and ejectives. Though that is the formal convention, unfortunately.

basically, as Prrton was pointing out, to tell where the stress is on a word (if it is known),
it is ON the syllable which the tiny thin straight ' is IN FRONT OF.
syllables of a word are separated by a period (.)
