Quest for an English to Greek lexicon

Postby jamesbath » Thu Apr 08, 2010 1:22 pm

Salvete Omnes,

Can someone point me to an "English to Greek" lexicon -- be it online, in print, or wherever?

Gratias vobis ago!

Well right after I posted my question, I bumped into The University of Chicago Library Woodhouse's English-Greek Dictionary at url http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/efts/Woodhouse/

This seems very promising.

More complete yet is doing a reverse lookup on LSJ. Go to http://perseus.uchicago.edu/Reference/LSJ.html Then in the lower box under "Search the full text for" enter the term you want. I use this all the time -- but you have to hunt through all the entries. It does bring back each word you want to find in a definition as a separate entry.

There is also GM Edwards at http://www.ancientlibrary.com/eng-grk/ but that site does not seem to work at the moment.

I keep a list at http://www.letsreadgreek.com/resources/lexica.htm but it is not up to date.

Gratias tibi. πολυαρκής (I think this means much helpful, according to Liddell & Scott).

Anyway, great stuff. Thanks!
