Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) - free online version

via Jim West

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is very pleased to announce the
release of a new online version of Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) free and
open to the public.

The TLG version of LSJ represents five years of intensive work with
the aim of producing a fully edited and searchable version of LSJ
with links to the TLG corpus. Text citations within LSJ are linked to
both the full TLG corpus and the Abridged TLG. TLG subscribers will
be able to browse full-texts by clicking on LSJ citations. Non-
subscribers will be linked either to the Abridged version or will be
shown short snippets of text. The interface allows dictionary look up
(headwords and Greek within entries), reverse look-up (searching
within English definitions) and searches for headwords in the TLG

We are very pleased to make this invaluable resource available to the
scholarly community.
