SZTAKI Szótár - Anagramma-kereső Generated by Anagram Lite (Copyright © 2001–2004 Zoltán Ivánfi) Mik azok az anagrammák? Az anagrammák olyan kifejezések, melyeket más szó vagy szavak betűinek felcserélésével kapunk, pl. matektanár = mértan átka. Feladványként, elrejtett üzenetek hordozóiként, vagy puszta érdekességként találkozhatunk velük. Az Anagram Lite használata Az Anagram Lite egy anagramma-kereső, tetszőleges kifejezésre (például saját nevünkre) megkísérel anagrammákat találni. A keresés az alábbi beállítások segítségével vezérelhető: Tanácsok az anagramma-kereséshez Az Anagram Lite alapértelmezett beállításai kb. 10–12 betű hosszúságú kifejezések kereséséhez optimálisak. Túl kevés találat esetén a szavak hossza legalább beállítás csökkentésével próbálkozhatunk. Túl sok találat esetén a hosszú és rövid magánhangzók beállítás eltérő betűknek számítanak értékre állítása „szebb” anagrammákat eredményez, miközben a kapott kifejezések számát is csökkenti.

It contains 1.9 billion words in 4.4 million web pages, and you can search the entire corpus with the same type of queries as the other BYU corpora. More importantly, though, you can also quickly and easily create "virtual" corpora "on the fly" for any topic that you want, such as: biology, investments, Buddhism, psychology, cars, basketball. Once you have created these corpora via the web interface, you can then quickly and easily search in the corpora. In addition to finding keywords, you can also search within your virtual corpora, such as matching words (e.g. financ*), strings of words (e.g. There are a number of tutorials for the corpus on YouTube (*= alternate site, if YouTube is not accessible in your country)

OPUS - an open source parallel corpus Weather Sensory Bottles for Circle Time Last updated Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Last week I added a new element to our circle time routine in my two- and three-year-olds classes…a simple weather check. I wanted some sort of hands-on manipulative to keep the children engaged and make the concept of weather more tangible, so I decided to try my hand at making some simple weather sensory bottles. These sensory bottles only took a few minutes to make using bits and bobs from my craft stash, and the children really respond to them. To make these bottles, I used fillable craft bottles I found at Hobby Lobby, but you could use any size bottle you wish. Here are all of the different bottles I made- they coordinate with the weather choices on our little chart. For cloudy I used three jumbo white pom poms and some tap water. Our rainy bottle has small blue glass beads for raindrops, three brownish/gray pom poms (I swear they looked gray at 1:00 am the night I made these) for clouds, and the glycerin/water mixture. And there you have it.
