GRST 246 Class Commentary

Links to Perseus and other resources

1 Leave a comment on block 1 0

In doing your homework you can consult the text of Seneca on Perseus.

The Perseus texts links each word to a word study tool that will help you parse the possible forms and root for any word.  This tool is not necessarily always accurate in its suggestions, so part of your work is to critically think about the possibilities Perseus presents. The word study tool is at its worst precisely with the kinds of words that are the hardest to differentiate.

Once you decide on a root word, Perseus also provides a link to the Lewis and Short dictionary entry for the word.  This dictionary should be used along with (in  physical form) the Oxford Latin Dictionary to prepare your vocabulary comments. Another electronic version of Lewis and Short can be accessed here.
