Fully Digital Forcellini now online

Post by Godmy » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:47 pm

A follow up to http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... =3&t=60081


Fully Digital Forcellini
Lexicon Totius Latinitatis
online



Here: http://lexica.linguax.com/forc2.php


A beta version of a fully digitized Forcellini from which you can copy-paste or search by CTRL+F.
This one took several years to release and it's still not fully finished (although quite ready to use)...

If you wish to motivate me continue in this kind of work and finish this project in my spare time, there is how to do that on the web.

I hope it's going to be useful! It's unique on the internet :)

Any plans for a print edition?

Marvellous tool!

However, just thought I'd mention a funny thing that happened when this idiot typed in "opera" (inside quotation marks). It said it was searching for the Lat. word 'quotoperaquot' and listed 25 lemmas from 'quot' to 'quotannis'.

Don't ask me why I used quotation marks (I had a reason but it certainly wasn't to test the program).

Looks like the programme took the string " from the web browser, stripped it of the non alphanumeric characters, and fed it straight to the query function.

Nesrad:

Yes, I too suspected something of the kind. It's a trivial detail anyway.

What's especially nice about the fully digital Forcellini version is being able to use the browser's CTRL+F to home in on the particular usage example you're looking for.

I'm glad if you find it useful, guys :-) I wanted to see this one up ever since I adapted the PDFs...

Also, thank you, Interaxus, for making me aware of the problem, I think I took care of it...

And yes, I always loved to do CTRL+F whenever I was using the L&S which was the only solid dictionary in the digital form accesssible to me.
