Re: Online Greek Dictionary with long vowels Α Ι Υ

Thanks for the suggestion! I also use it, but LOGEION doesn't even mark οἰκίᾱ — very frustrating! I hope there is a solution out there. I'd also gladly purchase a paper dictionary for a reasonable price if you all recommend a good one.

After having finished the wonderful Athenaze book, I have been going mad trying to figure out the long vowels ᾱ ῑ ῡ in ambiguous situations since almost no dictionaries seem to mark these (and the vocabulary in the back of the Athenaze, though useful, is comparatively limited).
