ΛΕΞΙΚΟΝ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟΝ ἐν εἰκόσιν

This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.

My daughter and I went through a few pages together, with her asking what the words for everything were. She was delighted: "ἱπποπόταμος, that's the same in English too!"

I think that I might take a page at a time and teach myself to quickly identify every image on the page.

I did notice quite a few missing accents though, on the pages we looked it:

47.1
48.2b
49.8
49.9b
49.11
49.13
50.8
51.10
52.5
52.16
54.4
54.8a
54.10
54.12
54.19

I'm delighted too! Hopefully you'll be able to imbue her with your love for the language. As for the missing accents, they are an editorial choice: I basically copied and pasted from LSJ. For example:


47.1 πῠελ-ος

Thank you for taking the trouble to report these!

That's a bad digitization of the LSJ. They are in the print edition. This maintains the accents, for example: http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/lsj/#eid=93922

Here is a a downloadable digitization that has them: https://archive.org/details/Lsj--LiddellScott

Looking at the missing accents in your link, I think that UChicago has left them out whenever the word was compressed into a paragraph of entries that only differed by the suffix.

In principle i could stack the accents as explained here, but it would be a pain in the tushie to go through the whole book.
I thought that UChicago didn't bother because the educated reader would figure out...

Joel, Will you explain to your daughter why it's a horse-river rather than a river-horse?

Even though she has a stuffed horse named Hippos that I brought from Lexington, she would likely call me a silly dad if I brought it up.

And I don't know the answer. It seems strange in Greek too. Euphony? Linnaean taxonomy?
