Try your words in the online Tamil lexicon one by one
and then combine them in a sensible way.

NaNban! Thanks for the link-this should help along with my agarAthi, but I fear either I am not using the lexicon efficiently or perhaps dont know how to go abt it properly. For example, if you type the words "king" (the example provided in primer) you get a slew of words starting with araivan2. perhaps a naive question: why the 2? What does that 2 mean? there is no araivan1?? Likewise if you type the word "bull" (also the example shown), the word "kALai" or "nanti" which should be the correct one appears as # 163 on the list. I know you get a tree or family of words, but if someone has no clue abt a word, is this not misleading? Also while I find it a little useful for English to Tamil the vice-versa (Tamil-English) has not been of much help. Check out some of the examples to see what I mean. Could you please provide pointers on this if you have used this before. Like I mentioned, I may be using it inefficiently. Thanking you in advance for yur time.

I think it should be 'arasan2' or
aracan2'. 'n2' is a letter, it's the last 'mey ezhuththu' in Tamil! The reason they denote that letter with 'n2' is to defferenitate from the letter 'n' pronouced as nth but usaed as n when combined with vovels such nAy(dog) etc.
