Book Description

The ninth edition of Liddell & Scott's Greek-English Lexicon (LSJ) has been freely available in electronic form since 2007, having been released by the Perseus Project under the Creative Commons Attribution–Noncommercial–Share Alike 3.0 license. In addition Lighthouse Digital Publishing has added all known Greek word-forms and parsings to the lexicon. This allows direct look-up of any poly-tonic Greek word-form within a given text. Search can also be performed within the lexicon by typing the headword using the Kindle keyboard and Beta-Code transliteration. The LSJ is a must have for any serious student of Greek and the Kindle edition works wonderfully fast. The small fee is to support continued development of the Kindle version and meet the minimum Amazon price.
1: The lexicon works only on E Ink devices i.e. the First generation Kindle, Kindle 2, Kindle 2 international version, Kindle DX, Kindle DX international version, Kindle DX Graphite, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle 4, Kindle Touch, Kindle 5, Kindle Paperwhite 1st and 2nd generation.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, but... November 13, 2012
By Picus
Verified Purchase
I am immensly happy that at last there is a working ancient greek dictionary, and by working I mean that it works as a main dictionary, which allows you to look up for words in a given text. It understands inflected forms, but it works in a bit different way than other dictionaries I use, it redirects you to one or more main forms, and then, if marked, they will send you to a given lemma. Actually I think it's a good thing, because it happens quite often in Greek that a given form can be a result of inflection of more than one word.
But there are few complaints:
First of all some derivative words are found in Liddle Scott only inside some bigger, more important lemmata, and this has not changed in this version, so these words are not "working" properly in this dictionary, for example ἀóèåíÝù, but this is not a big issue if you are able to identify this "more important" lemma and find the given word by your own.
Secondly, and this is quite a big issue, the dictionary is formatted for modern greek only (grc), and so texts which are formatted only for ancient greek (ell) will not cooperate. I don't get the reason behind that, I want to believe that it's been overlooked by the creators and they will get it right as soon as possible so that all the ancient greek texts, and especially LXX that are available on the Amazon can be read with the help of this dict.. If this little issue is not fixed and if you can't change formatting of a book than this dictionary will not be very effective.
Because of the last issue I am givin 4, which would be otherwise 5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work in Any of My Kindle Devices September 13, 2013
Save your money. Big disappointment. Useless in my Kindle, in my IPad Kindle, in my Android Kindle. This should not be out there unless and until it is vastly improved and made accessible to the usual kindle devices.

1.0 out of 5 stars Revisions have made this quite helpful after all January 4, 2013

I was really hoping this would let me see the definitions of ancient Greek words in my digital ancient Greek texts in the same manner as the other Kindle dictionaries. It doesn't work that way at all and in fact one has to use beta code to access the Greek definitions in the lexicon.

After my deep initial disappointment I was contacted by the preparer of this resource and have installed an updated version that I now find works quite well To be sure, if one is seeking verbs by lemma, it is necessary to search the lexicon by beta code, but this is a much more helpful product than I had expected for use with ancient Greek texts, especially ones that I had myself prepared for reading on the Kindle.

It does not work as advertised. The only thing that appears are the Greek words with English transliterations - no definitions

Very poor app. Nearly impossible to use. A waste of phone space. The Liddell and Scott is too great a resource to display so inefficiently.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning: does not work on iPad October 25, 2013
There should be a warning of some sort that this does not work for IPad. If it somehow does, were are the instructions? The instructions assume one has a Kindle device.

I could not use it. It would not work for the Kindle or any of the Kindle programs I tried. Do not waste your Coke money on this.
