Leximo - The World's Multilingual Dictionary

Leximo is a multilingual dictionary constructed of words and definitions contributed by Leximo users. As of this writing, there are more than 93,000 words in at least ten languages. It appears that most of the words on the website right now are English or Hindi words.

Applications for Education
The Leximo concept could have some potential as a resource in foreign langauge or ESL/EFL classrooms. The definitions are contributed by users of the Leximo website so there is potential for the definitions to reflect a more casual or slang definition of a word than is found in a standard dictionary.
