Title Málið.is: A Web Portal for Information on the Icelandic Language
Abstract Málið.is is a web portal on the Icelandic language and language use. It currently includes seven different resources, providing reliable information on the language. Six of the seven resources made available on the portal are living projects, constantly being updated. Málið.is provides easy and fast access to these, accessible on and designed for desktop and mobile devices. One of these resources contains a number of specialized terminologies. Thus it is a special characteristic of málið.is among language portals for other languages that it provides access to abundant domain specific vocabulary. Work is under way to add more resources to the portal, providing more diverse information. The aim of the project is to strengthen the Icelandic language in the digital era by making it easy to access information on the language, helping people becoming more proficient and confident language users.
