Wordmaker is a python program that helps people learn words and their meanings. It’s a console program, so run it from the command line. Use
wordmaker --update initially to retrieve a seed list from the web (fetched from the Sig9 Words database), and then use
wordmaker to output a list of word/meaning/usage triads. The mode I find most useful though is
wordmaker --question which lists the word first allowing you to recall it from your memory, and only then displays the meaning and usage.
TODO: It’s not entirely synced with the words list as of now, but that requires a server patch-up. Maybe if/when Vivek feels like it, he’ll work on that. 🙂
