Introducing our Dictionary

The key to language learning is the knowledge of the main mechanisms of the formation of words and their base verb

The most spoken languages ​in the world today are the languages​​derived from Latin (French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian), English and German. What they have in common is that they are part of the same language family (Indo-European). Throughout history, these European languages influenced each other significantly in their vocabulary, grammar and writing. Therefore, studying the lexicology of these languages we find words with same roots or with remarkable similarity in their structure close to grammar, spelling and syntax. This can be seen in our ISM dictionary containing some 3,000 similar words with their own pronunciation in 7 languages ​with exceptions listed at the end and illustrating only a portion of the exact number.

There are countless connections between latin languages​ on phonetics, morphology, syntax and organization of the lexicon. The result of this analysis constitutes our 7 Parental Intercontinental Dictionary, which allows us to understand many words from a relatively small number of lexical items. Its interest is practical for linguists or multi-linguists. It constitutes a real richness in language training.

The technique of using the pluri-lingual dictionary is based on the fact that the brain obeys the mechanism of words repetitions, which leads to their memorization. Based on the phonetic tool – our ISM Dictionary – we assure the acquisition of an unknown language through vocabulary. The roots contained in many words are separated only by the Roman and German linguistic expression. It is suitable for the user to express themselves clearly and without excessive speed.

In the ISM dictionary each word is numbered alphabetically for memorization purpose. The «PHO» line is reserved for the written phonetic pronunciation. In this line we hear and see the similarity which is an evidence of the transparency we are trying to operate in the acquisition and learning of the correct pronunciation, this being the the key to acquiring language.

Grammatical abbreviations are assigned to each word: m-male, female-f, n-neutral pH plural v-verb-adjective adj, adv-adverb, *-exception.
