BMCR on two digital dictionaries

August 30th, 2005 by Juan Garc├ęs

The Bryn Mawr Classical Review has posted a review by Gerald Verbrugghe (Rutgers University) on two digital dictionaries:

Libronix Digital Library System, H.G. Liddell and R. Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon (rev. H.S. Jones and R. McKenzie, rev. supp. by P.G.W. Glare) Oxford 1996. Bellingham: Logos Bible Software, 2003.
$145.00. (link)

Wilhelm Pape, Electronic Edition of Griechisch-Deutsch: Handwo+rterbuch der griechischen Sprache, 3te Auflage (1914). Berlin: Digitale Bibliothek, 2005. ISBN 3-89853-517-7. EUR 45.00.

While overall positive, Verbrugghe points out some problematic issues (e.g. incorrect reproduction of lemmata in LSJ). He also offers some interesting comparisons between print and digital as well as between online and CD ROM versions.
