Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary


This is Lewis and Short's unabridged "A Latin Dictionary (1879)"! After the Oxford Latin Dictionary it is the most important lexical resource for students of Classical Latin!

Version 3.0 is a major upgrade of 2.0, which itself was a complete rewrite of the user interface. 3.0 now offers the full, unabridged, Lewis and Short text, whereas the previous app only offered Lewis' abridged "An Elementary Latin Dictionary (1890)." For those of you just interested in "An Elementary Latin Dictionary" then it is now available as a separate, cheaper, app.

Features:

(1) Prefix search for all headwords
(2) Full text search by keyword for all of the dictionary entries
(3) Completely offline! After the first license check the app remembers your device.

Nota Bene: The original OCR effort by Tufts University did a very bad job with the Greek glosses in this dictionary. While it is better than in their OCR effort for Lewis' abridged edition, there are numerous mistakes with the Greek accents. This can only be corrected by hand and will take me some months. Fortunately, the English and Latin OCR came out perfectly.

User reviews of Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary
Crashes when searching using Swype, fine with stock keyboard. I hope the author is able to implement a fix.

Grand but buggy Wonderful to have this classic unabridged Latin dictionary in such a handy format! Crashes sometimes when starting to enter a new headword for search. The background graphic keeps bobbing around as the keyboard and swipe menu appear and disappear.

Very good but typos Great app and works very well, but contains quite a few machine errors in the transliteration to Greek such as μηξανή for μηχανή or a few τη for θ.

Crashes From a paid app I expect much better quality! It regularly crashes, and the search function has a mind of its own.

Very Buggy Nine out of ten times, it freezes and closes right after I open the app.

Yay Thanks for fixing swype compatibility. No more switching between keyboards! Great for quick vocab look-up.
