The Perseus Digital Library makes available online via this page a searchable edition of the commonly known 'Lewis and Short Latin Dictionary'. The search box permits the searching of headwords (including part words) in the dictionary. The results page provides a list of matching headwords, a link to the corresponding entry in the dictionary, and an indication of the word frequency in the texts within the Perseus Digital Library. These texts may then also be accessed here by the user. The dictionary entry also provides a list of words with similar definitions (in both Latin and Greek).
