Kickstarter: The Last Chinese Dictionary App You'll Ever Need, No matter your level! Support Outlier Dictionary of Chinese Characters

-Let's get this one funded!

http://kck.st/1cPX2t3
Learn characters more efficiently with this revolutionary, easy-to-use dictionary. Discover how Chinese characters actually work!

Rather than just telling you all about it, we've put together an interactive demo — you can actually use it for yourself! Note that the formatting isn't set in stone — it's just intended to show some of the features that will be included in the final product. We're working on how to lay out the information in the most useful way possible. Click the image above to check out the demo on our website!

Note: The dictionary will be released through Pleco, so the demo is designed to look and feel like Pleco. However, since it's just a demo and not the full app, there is some functionality normally available in Pleco that doesn't work here. Rest assured that all the usual Pleco functionality will be available in the official release!

About the Dictionary



  • How do you teach Chinese characters in a way that is as efficient as possible while minimizing the burden on the learner?
  • How do you teach them in a way that helps students to be able to recall them in the long term rather than just long enough to pass next week's dictation test?
  • How do you foster an ability to predict possible meanings and pronunciations of unfamiliar characters encountered in context?
These are the problems that we're trying to solve, and we've spent years developing a new framework for learning Chinese characters based on sound paleographic principles and the principles of effective memorization. In the process, we've studied under some of the world's foremost experts in Chinese language and pedagogy, and we're now ready to distill all that academic training and expertise into an easy-to-use dictionary that will make your character learning more efficient.
With learning anything, the more you understand it, the easier it is to learn. Our dictionary explains how Chinese characters actually work, based on the most cutting-edge research. This is information that simply isn't available in English right now, and even if you already read Chinese, you'll only find it in very specialized books that take a great deal of academic training to make sense of. We're taking ivory tower knowledge and distilling it into something that will be truly useful to learners at all levels!

We spent some time chatting with Dr. Moser, Academic Director at CET Beijing, about our project and showing him the demo. Here's what he had to say about it afterward.
