Simple English Wiktionary

The Simple English Wiktionary is coming along quite nicely. We're at 1427 entries now. Though that doesn't seem like many, we only had just shy of 400 when I joined last April. My goal is to get a good basic vocabulary in there, about 2000-3000 words plus the Academic Word List. If anybody's interested in contributing, contact me ( b r e t t . r e y n o l d s @ h u m b e r . c a) or just head on over and have at it.

If you're interested in using the data to study vocabulary, there's an open-source program called jVLT that can import the data from the SEWikt for study and testing. I don't think the importing program has been uploaded yet, but I can send you the data if you're interested. Again, let me know.
