Powered by BÍN
If you search for an inflected or declined Icelandic word, and if (and only if !) the corresponding uninflected or undeclined word is available in deDICTis, the word will be suggested in the "powered by BÍN" line. This is still in an experimental state ...  


B       Displays the search term bold
T       Displays the words in the search results as hyperlinks
H       Moving the mouse over a word in the search results shows 20 entries for that word
S       Typing three letters in the search field suggests known words
