Cassell's Standard Latin Dictionary

Cassell's Standard Latin Dictionary

Since its first appearance in 1854, this dictionary has remained constant in its appeal to scholars through its many revisions. This Latin dictionary is among the best of its kind, reliable, compact and adequate for the needs of all save the specialist. Simpson has produced a book typographically easy to consult, combining elegance with utility. This edition incorporates English idioms and Latin spelling, includes general classical information where appropriate, shows long and short vowels where not immediately apparent, indicates irregular plural forms, cites and quotes ancient classical authors, and suggests paraphrases to express modern English in classical Latin form.

    Cassell's Standard Latin Dictionary Reviews

  • Riobhcah

    Excellent Latin dictionary...I would definitely recommend this one for the Latin student....

  • Alyson

    Amazing. I used another Latin dictionary for a while but this one is much better with in depth descriptions of the words....

  • Tanya

    I used this constantly in college and grad school, and it never failed me! I also get it out occasionally now when I come across unfamiliar Latin terms in British parish registers....

  • Al

    The Oxford or Little and Short are much better....

  • Kamal

    Great dictionary with lots of examples from classical authors....

  • Greg Heynen

    Handy mid-level dictionary. Suitable for most texts. Decent glosses, but no citations....

  • Jaguar

    Better than the other one I picked up, but still not the best. I could not find a Latin word I was looking for in here....
