    Unanswered: Beginner & DB creating

    Hi!

    I'm trying to make a dictionary.

    WordEng(#id,word);
    WordIta(#id, word);

    tables with words in Italian and English.
    Connect1(#id,id1,id2); connecting word form Eng with Ita translation.
    Connect2(#id,id1,id2); same for Italian.

    Is this correct? 3. normalisation? Will this work?

    is this a 1 to 1 relationship? i do not think so. one word can have multiple meanings and that means your design is not right.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    also, please don't put a hash character '#' in your column names. that's non-standard.
