Cambridge Greek Lexicon

benedict

 

Cambridge University Press will be publishing a new Ancient Greek-English Lexicon (in two volumes making approximately 1500 pages), aimed  primarily at students, but taking account of the most recent textual and  philological scholarship. Unforeseen delays at proof stage has meant that the long-awaited Lexicon may not be out before late 2020.

Instead of relying solely on existing lexicons, the editors have systematically gone back to the original texts in order to  construct their entries, which has enabled us to identify fresh interpretations and insights.

Employing up-to date lexicographical practices, we provide not only single-word translations, but also detailed information on meaning, context and  style. The Lexicon has been over 20 years in preparation.
