Smith's English-Latin Dictionary

Paperback xi

Smith's English-Latin Dictionary is an invaluable resource for students and teachers who are composing Latin verse and prose. It offers what smaller and less comprehensive dictionaries cannot — semantic range, depth, and precision. Each entry is composed of an English word, its corresponding Latin equivalents, and examples drawn from a full range of classical writers. The Index of Proper Names contains the Latin forms of names of thousands of persons, places, and geographical features from Greco-Roman history and mythology, as well as the Judeo-Christian Bible.

This reprint edition of Smith and Hall's A Copious and Critical English-Latin Dictionary (1871) includes the original Preface, Entries, and Index of Proper Names. New to the Bolchazy-Carducci edition is a Foreword by Dirk Sacre which places Smith and Hall's dictionary in its historical and pedagogical context. The Bolchazy-Carducci reprint edition also features a new, enlarged, easier-to-read format.
