Okus — reading environment for Classical Greek texts

August 11th, 2005 by Ross Scaife

from the mailbag this morning:

Dear Member of Classics Department or Classical Organization:

As the academic year approaches, I am writing to inform you about a new computer application, Okus, that is available for studying ancient Greek texts. Okus incorporates new methods for reading ancient Greek, including color-coordination of words based on tense or case and fast morphology parsing / dictionary-entry retrieval.

A demonstration version of this program is available for download at http://p225.com/. At this time Okus is only available on Microsoft Windows (XP and 2000).

Questions or comments will be welcomed. Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,

Projects 225

I’m not sure what to make of this line on the Projects 225 website: “due to the text operations this program is written in C++ for the windows OS.”
