Improve your vocabulary with a dictionary and state-of-the-art technology: Machine learning
Each language has thousands of words. The improvement and learning of vocabulary is a very complex process.
The vocabulary of people is divided into two categories: active and passive.
The first one is the one that understands without problems, but that in addition, is able to use when needed and without needing help.
The second is that which is understood without help or with very little help, but which is not capable of being used autonomously.
The broadest vocabulary of a person is the passive vocabulary and can be enormous, according to the theories of Tracey Terrell (scientist in linguistics).
If a methodology is not applied that word can hardly become part of its active vocabulary.
The Vocabulary approach is to apply the use of automatic learning (machine learning) to determine and classify the words that most appear in the media and that people will give more use at the time of expressing themselves.
This technique determines which passive words, present in the vocabulary of people, should have greater relevance to be active.
The improvement in machine learning algorithms increases with the increase in the use of the app, benefiting all users in general.
In this way the passive words that you already know will become active.
To determine the words you must have active in your vocabulary among the vast number of passive words you know we use algorithms similar to the Google PageRank method that measures the popularity of a link on the web, in this case we use the words along with the feedback of the users and other values that can not be detailed so that they can not be altered artificially.
At the beginning it is a gradual and slow process, but with the use of technology the time to achieve it is reduced gradually.
