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 people learning English. A Marathi learner seeks information about Marathi word for a given English word.
e.g. For the English word “door” Marathi words are दार, दरवाजा.
But knowing just these words is 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 the word is different. E.g. Take words माळ & चाळ. Both are feminine gender. And both sound almost the same. But their plurals are formed differently. Plural of माळ is माळा but that of चाळ is not चाळा. It is चाळी.
If one makes the plural of माळ as माळी; he will be in trouble as माळी means Gardener.
If one makes the plural of चाळ as चाळा then he will be in trouble as चाळा means idle habit.
So it is important to know exact the 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 the 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 the noun to be used with prepositions, and an example with a preposition.
If there are more than one synonyms then it provides details of all of them.
An English word can mean differently in a different context. So context is mentioned wherever applicable.
