A Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect: Expanded
For nearly a century, Richard John Cunliffe’s Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect has served as an invaluable resource for students and scholars of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. As both an English-Homeric dictionary and a concordance, the Lexicon lists and defines in English all instances of Greek words that appear in the two epics. Now, with the inclusion of Cunliffe’s “Homeric Proper and Place Names”—a forty-two-page supplement to the Lexicon—this expanded edition will be even more useful to readers of Homer.In his original preface to the supplement, Cunliffe explained that proper and place names had to be excluded from the Lexicon “chiefly on the ground of expense.” Although the Lexicon has enjoyed perennial popularity, scholars have long lamented the absence of “capitalized” name-forms in the Lexicon. By consolidating the two works into one handy single-volume format, this expanded edition fills the only gap in Cunliffe’s indispensable reference.In his preface to the expanded edition, James H. Dee explains the benefits of uniting the two dictionaries. In addition, Dee provides a brief list of errata and a helpful key to Cunliffe’s system of referencing the poems according to Greek letter.

An Homeric Dictionary for Use in Schools and Colleges: From the German of Dr Georg Autenrieth (Cambridge Library Collection -
The dialect of ancient Greek in which the Homeric epics the Iliad and the Odyssey were composed and later written down is sufficiently different from classical Attic Greek that it has always proven a stumbling block for students. Perceiving the need for a concise dictionary of Homeric Greek forms, German scholar Georg Autenrieth (1833-1900) compiled this now famous work, first published in 1873 and translated into English by Robert P. Keep (1844-1904) in 1877. Keep, who taught Greek at Yale University and various New England colleges, recognised from his own experience that Autenrieth's book would enable students to proceed faster and further in their studies of Homer than could ever be the case using a conventional dictionary, where dialect forms received a relatively cursory treatment at the end of each entry. The worldwide success of the work, reissued here in its first English edition, has justified this belief.

A Homeric Dictionary: For Use in Schools and Colleges (Classic
Excerpt from A Homeric Dictionary: For Use in Schools and CollegesThe necessity for extreme conciseness and the restriction of the work to' Homeric usage cause some articles to lack that full ac count of the various meanings of a word, as developed one from the other, which is to be found in a general lexicon like that of Liddell dz Scott. A certain baldness and inadequateness in the treatment of many words must, indeed, be a characteristic of such a dictionary. The test of the book, however, is its practi cal adaptation to the ends it is intended to serve. The writer's own experience has led him to believe that it is well adapted to meet the wants of the young student, as well as to be a com~ panion in the reading of those professional men who have nu willingly let their acquaintance with Homer drop because of the inconvenience of carrying with them on a journey or to the sea shore a cumbrous lexicon. It is his earnest hope that this book -so attractive in form, and procurable at so low a price - will render possible, alike in our secondary schools and in our col leges, the reading of a considerably larger portion of Homer than has heretofore been attempted.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
