More commonly known as "Lewis and Short", Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary is an expansive and detailed dictionary consisting of Latin words from the Classical period up through the late medieval period. Based on the work of Freund's German edition, Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary is a comprehensive work, containing over 2,000 pages of detailed lexical data. Further, Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary contain numerous contextual examples, allowing the reader to see how each entry is used in ancient Latin literature.

    Why Christian organization will charge too much for electronic data? I understand that preparation to the project takes time but you actually do not produce it from the scrap. And as mentioned before me, some of the work is accessible all over the internet.

    The hyperlinks need a lot of work. From what I have seen so far, about half of the links lead to the wrong resources.
