I want to make the dictionary for my kindle
and it works fine but when I search "arrived" I want it to show "arrive" with definition
I tried many things but doesn't work
Does anyone know how to do it?

Thank you in advance!

You'll need to define inflections. Here's an example of an English-German dictionary with inflections:


Code
<html>
<body>
<idx:entry>	<b><idx:orth>book	<idx:infl>	<idx:iform value="books"/>	</idx:infl>	</idx:orth> </b>	<i>Subst.</i> <br/>	Buch (n)
</idx:entry>
<br/><br/>
<hr/>
<idx:entry>	<b><idx:orth>go	<idx:infl>	<idx:iform value="goes"/>	<idx:iform value="going"/>	<idx:iform value="went"/>	<idx:iform value="gone"/>	</idx:infl>	</idx:orth> </b>	<i>Verb</i> <br/>	gehen
</idx:entry>
<br/><br/>
</body>
</html>
For more information see the old Mobipocket website and the Kindle Publishing Guidelines.

Hi Doitsu, with apologies for hijacking this thread, do you know if I can replace?

Code
<idx:iform value="books"/>
with

Code
<idx:iform value="books"></idx:iform>

Both forms are valid. If you have additional questions, please post them in the Dictionary FAQ thread.
