Howdy, all--

Those of you who do international or multicultural work--including 
Agricola searches for items in languages other than English--might 
appreciate this URL:

A Web of On-Line Dictionaries
http://www.bucknell.edu/~rbeard/diction.html

It points to about 400 dictionaries, specialized reference books,
thesauri, etc., in 130 languages.  It also points to on-line 
grammars, language identifiers, and multi-language dictionaries.  
Pretty amazing resource.

Among the specialized resources it points to:

The LOGOS Dictionary
http://dictionary.logos.it/query.html
(Over 40 languages; can do phrases as well as words)


Nevada Division of Water Planning Water Words Dictionary
http://www.state.nv.us/cnr/ndwp/dict-1/waterwds.htm
(Technical water quality-related terms)


NetLingo Dictionary
http://www.netlingo.com/
(Internet and computer-related terms, includes a pocket dictionary 
you can call up on your Web browser, and it'll sit there for later 
reference)


English Dictionary of Biotechnology
http://biotech.chem.indiana.edu/pages/dictionary.html
(Life sciences)


Samuel Adams Beer Dictionary
http://www.samadams.com/glossary/gloss.htm
(This is small grains related, thank you)


Glossary of Botanical Terms
http://www.gardenweb.com/glossary/
(Hort, gardening, landscape architecture, botany)


These might come in handy for those of you working with farmers on
legal/land stuff:

Dictionary of Legal Terms
http://www.wwlia.org/diction.htm

Dictionary of Real Estate Terms
http://www.top.net/realtor1/glossary/deftc.html



In addition to finding what I was searching for (names of small
grains and farming tools in different languages) thru these 
resources, I learned these useful food-related phrases in Klingon:

"Where do you keep the chocolate?"
nuqDaq yuch Dapol 

"Am I supposed to eat this?"  
Dochvam vISop net pIH'a'?

A tribble-skinner 
yIHmey SurghwI' 

And the motto of Klingon PR folks for certain corporations that shall 
remain nameless:
jIQum 'ej jIHoH 
(I communicate and I kill)


peace
michele
