Where to find perfective aspect of Polish verbs on the Internet?

Hi all.

I'm a student of Polish and wanted to know if there was a good site on the net for getting the perfective aspect of a verb.

At the moment, I have several methods of checking:

- Use Wiktionary.org (limited number of verbs, or at least links to their perfective counterparts)
- Google the imperfective infinitive and see what comes up (usually unsuccesful)
- Guess a prefix and check it on Ling.pl (inefficient)

A dictionary is obviously best but I don't always have one on me.

Is there a better online Polish resource I am missing? Perhaps even one that costs money.

For example, I wanted to know the perfective of "siekać" and had to fall back to a dictionary to find it. I would like to be able to find this online.

Thanks!

I'm going to answer my own question because I just read the stick learning resource thread and found a dictionary whose results don't turn up in Google.

The best resources I've found are:

- Oxford Wordpower results from this site: portalwiedzy.onet.pl/tlumacz.html?qs=sieka%E6&tr=ang-auto&x=34&y=13
- WordReference.com: wordreference.com/plen/sieka%C4%87

Both sites listed the askpect dokonany of "siedać."

(sorry about the links -- I can't post them yet because I'm new)

He meant "siekać" and he wrote it correctly in previous post. Stop jumping at his misspell and contribute to original question if you can.

Oops, I meant siekać.
