Babelapoint, Russian grammatical dictionary

Basically, babelapoint is a reference tool for students of Russian as a foreign language.

The user will find all the noums and adjetives declination forms (Nominative, Prepositional, Accusative, Genitive, Dative and Instrumental) as well as the verbs conjugations.

The best way to see what it can be found is an example.

If you look a noum, e.g. up house (дом), you will be able to find:
If you look up a verb, e.g. to buy (покупать), you'll be able to find:
  • All the forms for the verb. (It tells that покупать is imperfetive. Although, it doesn't state that the perfective form is купить. This a weak point in the verbs area.)
Finally, you can also look up a preposition with an adjective and noum and get the appropriate delination forms.
