[seul-edu] New educational app--languages

Here's one I _haven't_ heard of before:


"Saxogram is a script which generates vocabulary lists from texts
written in foreign languages. So far it has dictionaries for Latin,
German, and Italian. Saxogram was written with extensibility in
mind. Thus, other languages can be "plugged in" as modules. All that
is needed is a dictionary and a small amount of code.

"The purpose of the program is to speed up language learning. Too
much time is spent looking up every third word. This isn't practical
when learning a new language. Generating a vocabulary list that can
be used in parallel to your reading is, I think, helpful."
