Would it be possible to list dictionary forms of words in the key that appear when you hover over a word? E.g. the nominative singular of a noun, or the infinitive for a verb. It can be quite some work to figure out the dictionary form when e.g. a verb appears in the locative, or a verb appears in the masculine past - especially when the conjugation is irregular or has weird sound changes (and Polish isn't exactly lacking either).

Wiktionary is good for that. If you look up a form of a word it will usually link you back to the dictionary form.

I use Wiktionary/Wikisłownik all the time already. Searching for a conjugated form sometimes returns the correct page, but not always in my experience. Main problem is, it's quite tedious to look up almost every single word in a lesson. Especially so if you have to play detective.
