Liddell-Scott Greek-English Lexicon, 8th ed.


One of the most important Greek-reference works ever produced, the Liddell-Scott Greek-English Lexicon covers word usage from the high Greek classical poetry of Homer and Hesiod to the everyday Koine Greek of the New Testament authors, and beyond. In the eighth edition, each entry lists the root of the word, its definition, its irregular inflections, and quotations from authors that demonstrate its core definition and evolving usage. At the time of its publication, Liddell-Scott’s eighth edition (LSJ8) was the most comprehensive lexicon ever produced. Useful for lexicographical study and the study of ancient Greek literature, The Logos version of LSJ8 provides all the benefits and features found in other Logos Liddell-Scott lexicons and will integrate into your software with the same seamless precision and utility.

    It'd be nice to have this for translating the church fathers. Of course, BDAG would be great, but not everyone can drop $150.00 for a Greek dictionary (and I'm just a theologian in training, not a patrologist).

    Yes, potential buyers should note this is an older edition as others have commented. True, Jeremy notes a couple of reasons to purchase this. But one should also know that being published in 1901, the knowledge of Koine Greek--the language of the NT--was very limited until a few decades later and has grown since. The discussion of classical Greek in this edition may still be of value, but given the sheer growth of knowledge of ancient Greek and the numerous updated sources available, I'd say this product is for collectors or serious scholars who need to compare newer and older works. The newer edition is what you want if you're in the market for this at all. By the way, Liddell-Scott's "An Intermediate Greek Lexicon," is an abridged version of the newer edition (not sure if it's standard with some packages). No articles, it gives very brief definitions (I mean very brief) with one or two citations of the word's usage in classical Greek sources.
