The Database structure There is a very simple MySQL table used to store all the words with the structure being as follows: CREATE TABLE `wordbase` (`word` varchar(50) NOT NULL, `verified` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', PRIMARY KEY (`word`), KEY `verified` (`verified`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8

) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8

The Progress so far There are more than 5000 words already stored in the database and verified by experts as being correct. You can use the current version here… http://saraswaticlasses.net/shabdasampada/
