Constantly Risking Absurdity

Attention Students of Latin and Greek!

Some wonderful people at Tufts University have set up the Perseus Digital Library. Among their many "tools" are complete vocabulary lists for classical works in Greek and Latin, from Plato and Aristotle to Quintillian and Boethius (and including the Vulgate). This was a life saver for me when I was translating the Apology earlier this semester, and it saved hours of my time. Sure, you have to transliterate the Greek letters into Roman ones, but it's not too hard. And if you're searching through Latin works, that's no problem. See also their Greek and Latin catalogues of morphological analyses, their English-Greek and English-Latin dictionaries, and their historical maps of London (Andy you should like this).

We should all write emails to the good people of Tufts and give thanks.

And speaking of resources on the web, my friend Mary has some excellent links posted up.
