    This is something I did in my free time. Hopefully somebody fines it entertaining or maybe even educational. Feel free to give suggestions, but there's no guarantee I'll keep working on this. Let me know if there are any major issues. The browser you use has to have HTML5 support and Javascript enabled. Chrome, Firefox and Safari should be good. Internet Explorer might work if it's version 9.

    This is a great idea!! I am sharing with my sister/nieces & nephews. It would be good to have a version with automatically generated words as I think that would engage more people (humans are lazy!) and be a better learning experience (by increasing vocab and improving spelling. Thanks for sharing cheerleader

    Thanks, I appreciate it when people leave their comments. I'd love to add a feature that would auto generate words, but then I would need to create a large list of punjabi words (and probably their definitions to make it educational). If I had a list like that it wouldn't be too hard. I've looked online and I can't find anything like that. I've also looked at current online punjabi dictionaries to see if there's a way I could use their database. Unfortunately, these websites had no contact information, so I couldn't ask the creators for a copy of their database.

    If anyone has any type of database or list like this, let me know.

    There is a LIST of ALL the WORDS in the SGGS available on the Internet..and its downloadable...perhaps that can serve as a basic beginning...
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
