New Zhyler Corpus

One of the many happy results of the Kalusa project is a truly
workable, customizable, and enjoyable method of creating a
corpus and lexicon for a conlang.  I've taken the source code
Gary used to create the Kalusa project, and created a corpus of
Zhyler sentences.  I think I've finally found a way to include
something like an online dictionary that I'm satisfied with.
Rather than defining each and every word, all you have to do
is write sentences, and write their English translations--no
interlinears.  In this way, the Zhyler corpus now has 100 sentences,
all added in a rather short amount of time.  Here's the result:

For those like me that have had trouble adding a dictionary to
their site, I recommend giving this one a try.  You do have to
have a MySQL database, but it's my understanding that many (?)
ISP's have a method for doing so.  The original source code
can be downloaded at the Kalusa site:
