Learning new words, new language? This script can help

What?

new-words is a script for QuickAdd to create a list of newly learned words with their meanings and translations.

Why?

As a non-native English speaker, when I’m reading English literature and find an unknown word, I attempt to understand it by looking up its definition in English. However, sometimes, even after understanding the meaning, I find myself thinking of the equivalent word in my native language.

Therefore, I thought it would be great to compile a list of new words with their definitions and translations, so I can revisit it later for learning purposes.
