Greek to English

Postby Keesa » Fri Aug 08, 2003 11:12 am

Um-I'm not sure if questions belong in this part of the site, but does anyone here know of a good online dictionary for Greek, where you can type in the word and come up with a list of possible definitions in English? I had found one, but it didn't seem to work very well. <br /><br />(Jeff, if you feel that this post belongs in another part of Textkit, please feel free to move it.) <br /><br />Keesa

Perseus springs to mind.<br /><br />http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/resolveform<br /><br />Type your Greek word in the box marked find and it will give the dictionary entry for your word, or a selection of dictionary entries for you to choose from. <br /><br />If you don't know what the dictionary form would be for the word in your text, this page will help. <br /><br />http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/morphindex?lang=greek<br /><br /><br />Have you got the SP Ionic font we use on this board? You can get Perseus to use it by clicking on configure display near the top left hand corner of the screen and then marking SP Ionic in the 3rd box down on the left hand side of the screen.
