Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) on TLG

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae now announces: “The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is proud to announce the release of a new online version of Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ), the premier lexicon for classical Greek. The TLG version represents five years of intensive work to produce a fully edited and searchable version of LSJ with links to the TLG corpus.”

“The TLG embarked into this project in 2006. Recognizing the fact that LSJ is the most central reference work for all scholars and students of ancient Greek, we decided that producing a fully corrected and reliably accessible online version with links to TLG texts was a worthwhile undertaking. The digital LSJ was a natural extension of our larger and ongoing lemmatization project. In the process of improving automatic recognition of all word forms in our texts, we have digitized and extracted information such as headwords, meanings, and grammatical use from a large number of dictionaries. Making LSJ available to the public was another step in this direction.”

Update:The LSJ is currently unavailable. After its release last week, the TLG site has been bombarded by pirate sites seeking to download its data. In the process they have caused serious technical and security problems. We regret having to suspend access while we are taking steps to address the security of our servers. We apologize for the inconvenience this action has caused to many legitimate users.
