Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect Online

Post by Ahab » Sat Jan 12, 2013 1:58 pm

Browsing over on the TLG site this am and was happily surprised to find that Cunliffe's Lexicon is also online there along with the LSJ.

Here is a link: http://www.tlg.uci.edu/cunliffe/#eid=1&context=lsj
Why, he's at worst your poet who sings how Greeks
That never were, in Troy which never was,
Did this or the other impossible great thing!

Thanks for the good news! My Cunliffe is going apart.

There are also some great online resources (although not Cunliffe) over at the Perseus Project, a service of Tufts University.

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/col ... reco-Roman

If you open up any of the Greek texts, and click on any word, it will load a "word study tool" which links to entries for that word in several dictionaries, including Autenrieth.

I would not normally recommend Autenrieth to anyone except the most desperate. The definitions are so spare as to court being actively misleading.

Nice link. I would have posted my copy of Cunliff's here at Textkit, but it's actually still under copyright since the original publication date is 1924.

I'm collecting for my personal use a Homeric word list. Through the Vocabulary Tool in Perseus, I selected both the Iliad and the Odyssey, and I got a total of 9954 words (but the Tool put in the list words like Ἄραψ which of course in no way appears in the Homeric texts, so I'll have to "clean" the list).
I know that the Autenrieth's lexicon is about 5100 words, do you know how many lemmas are in Cunliffe's?

9809, according to the online version at http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/cunliffe/# ... ontext=lsj.

That includes a number of conjugated forms such as ἄγεν, ἀγέρθη, ἀγέροντο, which I suppose were considered difficult enough by the author to have their own entry.
