New type of discussion/layout?

Look at this link: https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Polish/ser/26742a2ea3a637ea0c111c259851a480

Why is it like that and are there more like it??

In any sentence discussion, if the words in the target language sentence turn blue if you put the cursor over them, you can click on them to yield a page like that (although I don't immediately recall seeing the graphics at the top before, if by chance it was only that you were asking about).

Here's one for Guaraní for example: https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/guaran%C3%AD%20(jopar%C3%A1)/kamby/21c6119079b06003f5750c2be1c40fc8

I'm not sure which languages have this and if it's all sentences in a language. I think a good while ago I read an announcement introducing this and they said something about it being "select sentences"; however, I think Guaraní at least tends to have them pretty broadly.

EDIT: when I clicked the link I posted, there was a graphic banner at the top. Interesting. That doesn't show up when accessing it from the sentence discussions directly, as far as I know.

EDIT 2: for some reason the link to the Guaraní one isn't working. Here's one for Russian: https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Russian/%D0%BE%D0%BF%D0%B0%D0%B7%D0%B4%D1%8B%D0%B2%D0%B0%D1%8E/31b08f6a7ac6e680e264b30af33699e9


There are dictionaries in every language. It's honestly like an epic Duolingo feature that they keep hidden from it's users. I don't really understand why it's not more widely known.

To use it, go to Google search and put in:

site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/target language word you are searching

EXAMPLE SEARCH: site:https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/French avoir


Bob20020 that's interesting... how did you get to that place? following...


After you answer a question, check the comments of that sentence. Then, at the top of the comments page select the individual word that you want to check, and it'll show you what it means!


Yes there are more for other languages, I think that it is a feature under construction.
I have found that for several words via google search.
