——————— Why new Dictionary ? ———————————

There are many English-to-Marathi dictionaries available as books or online or in app-form.

But all these dictionaries are for native Marathi person learning English. A Marathi learner seeks information of Marathi word for a given English word.

 

e.g. For English word “door” Marathi words are दारदरवाजा.

But knowing just these words are not sufficient for Marathi learner.

He must know that दार is of Neuter gender and दरवाजा is of Masculine gender. Otherwise how can he decide different verb forms in this sentence?

ते दार उघडले.

तो दरवाजा उघडला.

 

Also in Marathi plural of word is different. E.g. Take words माळ

चाळ. Both are feminine gender. And both sound almost same. But their plurals are formed differently.

Plural of माळ is माळा  but that of चाळ is not चाळा. It is चाळी.

If one make plural of माळ as माळी; he will be in trouble as माळी means Gardener.

If one makes plural of चाळ as चाळा then he will be in trouble as चाळा means idle habit.

So it is important to know exact plural.

 

Similarly before adding preposition noun form changes.

e.g Price of garland = माळेची किंमत

Price of chawl = चाळीची किंमत

Form of noun माळ is माळे and form of noun चाळ is चाळी.

Though both nouns are of same gender and sound similar, their form is different.

 

Thus this dictionary is created from point of view of Marathi learners and currently limited only to NOUNs in Marathi.

It gives details of gender, plural and inflected form of noun to be used with prepositions, and an example with preposition.

 

If there are more than one synonyms then it provides details of all of them.

 

An English word can mean differently in different context. So context is mentioned wherever applicable.
