I know for a fact Godmy has finished scanning and uploading Smith's dictionary, but it is unclear to me when he'll officially release it.

I'm going to publish several new dictionaries soon: among them critical English-Latin dictionaries, an English version of Forcellini, critical English-Attic dictionaries and much more.

Moreoever there might appear a fully digital hand-transcribed version of Forcellini.

I haven't yet asked for any donations for this year, maybe I will once I publish the dictionaries, since I still want the website to pay for itself without me feeling like I should include ads and similar annoyances.

Is this "A Copious and Critical English-Latin Dictionary" by Smith and Hall, published in 1871? If so, readers might like to know that Project Gutenberg Distributed Proofreaders has a project to proofread an OCR version of the dictionary (which will be submitted to Project Gutenberg once finished for everyone to enjoy). If anyone would like to help out, go to http://www.pgdp.net/ and register, then check the beginner tutorials at http://www.pgdp.net/c/quiz/start.php?show_only=PQ. The dictionary project page is at http://www.pgdp.net/c/project.php?id=pr ... proj_avail.

I am amazed to read this. Transcribing Forcellini would be an enormous task, and the service rendered to students of Latin would be incomparable. We could even have new paper-bound editions of Forcellini, and possibly (computer-generated) abridged editions. It would be the only real monolingual Latin dictionary available, and what a dictionary!

I'll definitely contribute to this. Thanks for informing us about it.

Hi guys. For anybody looking for an online version of Smith & Hall's dictionary, some Brazilian guy has made us the great favour to put it up in a similar format as Godmy's dictionaries, so that you're able to search for headwords. Behold:

Enjoy!

I'm afraid the existence of the Linguax website is endangered at the moment. I can either shut the site down (since I don't have finances to run this any longer with the number of both dictionaries/traffic and the high number of users every day I have) or I put ads (Google-Ads e.g.) into there and make them absolutely unblockable - something I would hate to do since I hate ads, or I start receiving donations :-/ I have received some rare ones from some of the users here, but I'm still afraid the website is a little bit more expensive. (more about that there)


Also since today I added 4 new dictionaries:
- an updated list can be seen here http://lexica.linguax.com
- an English-Latin critical dictionary (Smith & Hall for those who prefers the original version) http://lexica.linguax.com/smith.php
- English-Attic / English-Ancient Greek critical dictionary Yonge http://lexica.linguax.com/yonge.php
- English-Attic phraseological dictionary Fradersdorf http://lexica.linguax.com/fradersdorff
- and one much required Hungaro-Slovak dictionary nobody here probably cares about :D

And more are to come in this month (hopefully, if the website continues running).
