Thesaurus Linguae Latinae - Electronic Edition | 1.71 GB
The Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (abbreviated as ThLL or TLL) is a monumental dictionary of Latin. It encompasses the Latin language from the time of its origin to the time of Isidore of Seville (?636).
The project began in 1894 and it is scheduled to be completed around the year 2050. The last fascicle of the P-volume appeared in 2010, and work is currently under way on both N and R. The institution that carries out the work of the dictionary is located in Munich, in the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
The fifth electronic edition of the Thesaurus linguae Latinae includes all the lexicon articles published between 1900 and 2006 (for the letters A?M, O, P?plenarius, porta?puberat), the articles of the special volumes of proper names (for the letters C and D), the Index librorum and the Praemonenda de rationibus et usu operis, a multi-lingual introduction to the Thesaurus. The contents of the electronic edition thus correspond to those of the complete printed version of the Thesaurus.
The electronic edition offers a wealth of access, search and navigation possibilities, including:
Calling up of particular articles via the table of contents or the lemma list
Calling up of particular Thesaurus passages via the entry of volume, page and line number
Full-text search and search in particular sections of the articles
Search in the quotations and accompanying citations
Display of articles as they appear in the printed version (Article view) with hyperlinks to annotations in the Index librorum and the places referred to in the Thesaurus
Display of the article structure (Outline view)
Alphabetical lists of citations in the respective articles with previews of the quotations (Citation view)
The variety of ways in which the electronic version can be accessed offer a new basis for working with the lexicon. Many questions can be answered quicker, and in some cases, can be answered for the very first time. The articles are easier to read and references can be established without effort.
