A new dictionary app has revealed the correct way to pronounce the country’s new regional name.
The app, created by local language experts at Australian National University (ANU), allows users to search the internet for the new term and then search the words in the title of the dictionary, for example “Bulgarian” and “Bulgarian restaurant”.
The app’s creators say it is the first in the world to allow users to compare regional names with their own language.
“We think it’s a fantastic app for students and people with an interest in regional languages, but also for language lovers, especially if you’re a language learner,” Associate Professor Andrew Jones said.
“People in many parts of the world speak different languages and it’s very important for the Australian language community to be able to speak to each other.”
Language learners, especially those who are not native speakers of Australian English, can also be interested in learning other regional languages.
“Mr Jones said the app would be developed and distributed free of charge.”
If we get enough feedback, we might do it in the future for free for students or language learners in Australia,” he said.
The new app, called “The Australian Language App”, is now available in more than 80 languages.
It allows users who do not have access to the local language dictionary to find local words that have the correct pronunciation.”
It’s an app for everyone,” Associate Prof Jones said, adding the app had already been downloaded more than 6 million times.”
I’m just glad people are enjoying it.
