Keeleveeb multiple dictionary and corpora query is a project initiated by an Estonian language technology company "Filosoft". Although there are several online Estonian dictionaries, both monolingual and bilingual, they are sometimes difficult to find and their simultaneous use is definitely complicated. The idea behind "keeleveeb" (it translates "language web" in English) is to carry out a query over many language resources — dictionaries and corpora.
Estonian is a moprhologically rich language, and to find a word in corpus text is not a trivial task, most propably the word that one is interested in, is in some inflected form, that is not the dictionary keyword form (singular nominative for nouns and supine for verbs). Thatswhy morphological analyser and synthesizer are integrated into the system as well.
The user interface is in Estonian, English and Russian, query can be not only for Estonian, but for other languages in the dictionaries as well (eg. English, Russian, Finnish, German).
