Discoverb 0.1: learn foreign words and definitions

Hello all,

I proudly announce: discoverb!

What is discoverb?

Discoverb is a python program. It is a way to test the words you've learned.
You can tell discoverb what a word means (by putting it in a file) and
discoverb will ask you the meaning of the word. It writes all words you do
not know, when you give the wrong anwser, to a file. A word can have more
than one meaning, sometimes the program will ask you all meanings of a word,
and sometimes only one. That depends on what you write into the file.

Discoverb is still in a very early stage of development, it's absolutly
unstable at the moment. I still have to write a GUI. But I'm working quite
hard at it. I still have to write a manual. When I have more of such things,
I'll announce it at "larger" places, like freshmeat, (it's
cross-platform), and many, many portals.

I will often release a new version, but I won't announce the small ones
everywhere. There is a discoverb mailinglist at, you
can subscribe by sending an email to, with in the
body: subscribe discoverb. Every improvement will be announced there.

If you're interested, visit the discoverb homepage at:

have fun,

Gerrit Holl
