Overview

Over 35,000 references on 480 pages

  • Extensive vocabulary of the most widely read authors of classical Latin with over 2,000 new entries acquired from recent scholarship
  • Diacritical marking of long vowels to facilitate pronunciation
  • Classical prose vocabulary in the English-Latin section
  • The ideal compact reference work for everyday use

The Latin-English section of this dictionary is an entirely revised edition of Professor K. Feyerabend's well-known dictionary, which went through several editions.

A special feature is the marking of 'hidden' quantities. There is an introductory account of the development of the Latin language, and just before the main text there is a list of the Roman authors whose vocabulary is included, and information on the arrangement of the dictionary.

The English-Latin section of the dictionary offers a Classical prose vocabulary. Equivalents have been drawn wherever possible from Cicero and Cæsar, and where notes on a word's construction are given they are likewise based on the best prose usage.
