No idea. I prefer to slowly add new words as I go through the lessons so
I can always learn stuff that's relevant or already known.

That'd be great, but writing the rules and keeping it generic sounds
annoying. Maybe some sort of tagging system [nn,st] for noun, strong
declension or similar would work. But you'd still have to specify what
to do based on the tags, and judging from the few languages I've learned
that could be quite a lot... Changing the end, or the middle, etc. The
end is obviously simple enough (just put the base in the word and let
tags handle the rest), but if the stem changes as well... Bleh. If you
do write a patch, just send it to me ;)
