For facilitating subsequent translation of words in a target polysynthetic language (e.g. Cherokee) to or from a user language (e.g. English), a method of generating a language parsing reference database, assisted by a computer having a processor, including the steps of organizing the parsing reference database to include polysynthetic word parts WHO is doing an action, WHAT action is being done, HOW an action is happening and WHEN an action is happening. In one embodiment an internet website hosted on a computer server is established, the website being accessible to users via the internet. The computer server runs or executes server side software referencing the parsing reference database, and is operable to translate a word in the target polysynthetic language to the user language, or to construct a word in the target polysynthetic language from a sentence in a user language.
