A thread for requesting words to add to the dictionary.
I often enter items that aren't in the dictionary. I used to think that the site was keeping track of these, and would add them later, but I don't think it does. The one I tried today was palakaibigan - friendly; sociable. Unless there's already a system in place, please feel free to post missing words here.

Feel free to post word requests here! Even better if you can provide definitions...
 
I do go through the search logs occasionally and pick out words that have a high frequency of searches...but it's not consistent, and is usually reserved for more high volume words that are missing. We've been working through our 24 million word corpus and going down the list of most frequent words from there...that usually gives the most "bang for the buck" as far as word data entry to help the most people in the least amount of time. I'm also periodically scanning in a bunch of news articles for words to add, to find more timely words that should be there.

palakaibigan
 
Looks like its composed of a rather uncommon affix (pala) + kaibigan. I've never encountered pala in the wild outside of palabiro. In this case have you considered using the root checker tool? I haven't checked it here but it usually does a pretty good job. The great part about native Tagalog words (vs sanskrit/spanish loans) is that you can usually guess if you know both parts separate.

@akosikoneho
Yeah...the "Affix Analysis" tool here does pick this one up:
www.tagaloglessons.c om/affix-analysis/in dex.php?affix_analys is_keyword=pala
 
That tool still needs a lot of work...it has most of the adjective/adverb/noun affixes, but doesn't have all a number of the less common verb affixes.

If you REALLY want to go down the rabbit hole... ; )
.

.
I wrote a program where I can paste in Tagalog text and it will analyze the text.
It detects English vs. Filipino words based on a 24,000 word English database to get better info. Then after it spits out words it doesn't find in our database, I'll manually take out any English words the program missed to make the data exact.
 
This is an example of the output using 5 news articles from Balita.net:
 
Overview:
Total # Word Instances: 2841 ~ 9.47 written pages
Filipino # Instances: 1843
English # Instances: 998
 
# Unique Filipino Words: 666
# Unique English Words: 406
# Unique Words Including English: 1072
 
Looking only at Filipino words, our dictionary did not find exact matches for:
2.5% ( 46 / 1843 )
...of all instances of all Filipino words in the sample text ~ 4.86 words per page.
 
Looking at Filipino words, our competitors' dictionaries did not find exact matches for:
7.87% ( 145 / 1843 )
...of all instances of all Filipino words in the sample text ~ 15.3 words per page.
 
List of words where there is not an exact match in our dictionary:
buhaybilanggo: 4 Corpus Instance Count: 0.
pinaligtas: 2 Corpus Instance Count: 7.
nagpabagsak: 1 Corpus Instance Count: 32.

namiminsala: 1 Corpus Instance Count: 3.
magbuhaybilanggo: 1 Corpus Instance Count: 0.
nakapangingilabot: 1 Corpus Instance Count: 7.
lumubo: 1 Corpus Instance Count: 0.
 
You'll notice...the missing words list also shows the frequency count from our 24 million word corpus...to try to indicate which words I'm missing that are important and should be prioritized for data entry.
 
Also as a side note: This is only counting EXACT MATCHES or EXACT MATCH + NG. A lot of times the missing words will have a very close word or alternate spelling that will show in our search results...so that 2.5% missing is actually better than that rate. I'm also giving the competitor dictionaries credit for exact matches on word+ng ligature...even though often times their algorithm won't show that search result unless you search for both manually...
 
ANYWAY...that all is to say...there's a lot more than might be immediately obvious that is going on in the background to grow this dictionary efficiently.
