Oxford Latin Dictionary

The Oxford Latin Dictionary (or OLD) is the standard lexicon of Classical Latin, completed in 1982.

The dictionary professes to be "independent alike of Lewis & Short on the one hand and of the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae on the other." It "is based on an entirely fresh reading of the Latin sources. It follows, generally speaking, the principles of the Oxford English Dictionary, and its formal layout of articles is similar." (p. v).

Famous quotes containing the words dictionary, oxford and/or latin:

    If someday I make a dictionary of definitions wanting single words to head them, a cherished entry will be “To abridge, expand, or otherwise alter or cause to be altered for the sake of belated improvement, one’s own writings in translation.”
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    I wonder anybody does anything at Oxford but dream and remember, the place is so beautiful. One almost expects the people to sing instead of speaking. It is all ... like an opera.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    But these young scholars, who invade our hills,
    Bold as the engineer who fells the wood,
    And travelling often in the cut he makes,
    Love not the flower they pluck, and know it not
    And all their botany is Latin names.
    The old men studied magic in the flowers.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
