The Leximo Revolution

Why Leximo? What makes it so different from Urbandictionary or Wikipedia?

These are some of the questions we have been receiving about Leximo.

To answer that, our plan for Leximo differs from traditional dictionaries as well as other currently existing web dictionaries in that we plan to be an “Open Dictionary”. The information available is not restricted; users can do whatever they like with it. Giving them access to our dictionary database allows users to create anything they desire. Everything is open and free to use in the spirit of “Creative Commons,” which belongs to the public domain.

In addition, an emphasis on the theme of “User Interaction” allows users to share and more importantly belong to a community that is working towards unifying all of the world’s languages into our open database.

Although we're just two college students trying to accomplish a task deemed by many as impossible, we strongly believe in our vision and know that the world dictionaries are deeply yearning for a global and cultural revolution... the Leximo Revolution. So we invite you to join us in our quest of unifying the World's dictionaries and leave you with this quote from Che Guevara.

"I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves."
