Latin Dictionary is the Lewis and Short lexicon on the ancient language of Latin. It was first published in 1879 and it's been in the public domain for ages and yet it remains the standard reference work for medievalists, renaissance specialists…..
Rated 4/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
needs some work
The dictionary itself is great. I love the ability to read Latin "on-the-go" without having to carry an additional dictionary. However, the UI doesn't draw me in. There should definitely be a cover page. I was surprised the first time I opened the page and it was a nearly blank screen. It doesn't seem like a lot of thought went into making it feel accessible. As to the reveiwer who couldn't look up verbs, as in all Latin and Greek dictionaries, the verb form you need to look up is the first person, present tense. For example, video - not videre. I personally like all the information provided. It is a true dictionary to be used by people who read Latin, not just for people with a curiosity about the language. Decent job, I would just like to have a better interface.
The biggest Latin dictionary at the smallest price

This is the Lewis & Short Latin dictionary, which has been *the* standard Latin-English dictionary for generations. It is by far the biggest, most complete Latin dictionary that I've seen available for iPhone. The app is simple to use, and the text is easy to read. Use the iPhone/iPod "Settings" button to adjust the text size. The L&S often includes the corresponding Greek term in its definitions; unfortunately the Greek is printed in "betacode," that is, in Roman letters. At first I could not figure out how to scroll through the list of words, but it's a simple matter of pressing the "Search" key. This is a great app at a fantastic price. Latin lovers, even serious students and scholars, will be well-pleased.
Lewis and Short is a standard Latin lexicon from the end of the 19th century. I have the print form at home but it is massive. Now I can bring it with me wherever I go! Keep in mind that this is a scholarly dictionary, not a glossary. The entries are thorough, and give example quotations and citations. I am surprised some people say it did not have the words they needed. It has, I think, every word in classical Latin, and many from ecclesiastcal and medieval Latin, too. The complainers probably looked up the word in its inflected form, and were socked not to be able to find, say, "erroribus." Only flaw is that the Greek text in etymologies does not display properly.
