Welcome to Bendict! This a free, wiki-style project, which has the purpose of gather every word of the Bengenese language, a fictional language (conlang) created by user Danniel. This wiki is based on Wiktionary, a Wikimedia project, to build templates and set basic layout.

Designed as the lexical companion to Benpedia, the encyclopaedia project, Bendict includes a thesaurus, appendices and rhymes pages. We aim to include not only the definition of a word, but also enough information to really understand it. Thus, etymologies, pronunciations, sample quotations, synonyms, antonyms, spelling variants, non-standard spellings, etc., are included. With all this, you can use this wiki as a guide dictionary to be able to understand any other website written in Bengenese. There are currently two wikis of this type: Benpedia and the Five Nights at Freddy's Wiki in Bengenese.

In each entry of this wiki you will find the etymology of the word in a real language, its pronunciation with the IPA and its definitions. It should be noted that definitions do not apply back to English; the definitions are written from Bengenese, and what meaning they have in this language.

If you want to begin to explore Bendict's entries, we recommend you to use the navigation bar, at the left side of this page. You can browse through different category pages, that contain most of the entries of the wiki. Additionally, you can click the "Random page" link, that will take you to a random entry (exactly what you would think it does). Also in the navbar, you can find the link "Milestones". On this page, we have recorded the most important moments of the wiki, mainly related to the number of entries.

Although the language is clearly unknown to everyone, we have some resources available on this wiki to make editing a possibility for anyone interested in the project. For example, if you are interested in contributing to improve IPA information in entries, you can use the Appendix:Pronunciation page, and thus familiarise yourself with the spellings and phonemes present in Bengenese.

For further information about the language, see this page. See also the help pages, appendixes and rhymes page. As a standard, British spelling is preferred throughout the wiki. Check up American and British English spelling differences on Wikipedia for coverage on this matter.
