Lewis and Short's Latin-English Lexicon (1879)
- For most purposes, this separate database for a single dictionary should now be obsolete. You can consult all these resources together in Logeion, which contains copies of the dictionaries that are more frequently updated, and more besides: the DGE and DuCange accompany LSJ and Lewis & Short, and you will also find frequency data, collocations, and examples from the corpus.

There is even an app for your phone! The options offered below are useful if instead of searching for particular entries (the normal mode of using a dictionary), you want to search the full text.
Tips for using this form
- Click SEARCH (or hit Enter at anytime) to execute your Search; click CLEAR to clear the entire form and start over.
You will normally use the headword search and full-text search options separately; however, it is possible to search the text of large entries by entering the headword in the upper search box and another string in the lower search box. This restricts the full-text search to just one entry.
- The search form does not allow for punctuation marks, but if you are looking, say, for all citations of Plautus' Miles Gloriosus in the lexicon, simply enter "Plaut Mil" without punctuation.

Note: this electronic version was edited to eliminate the letter -j- from dictionary headwords and many cross references; the letter -v- has been retained.
