Some resources which will hopefully be useful to high school/undergrad students who need a quick ‘look up’ of something or a ‘starting place’ for research.
Of Use to Students of Latin
- Latin Dictionary ~ Lewis & Short @ Perseus (best to use the “words starting with” from the dropdown menu and just type the stem of the word)
- Numen ~ Lewis Elementary and Lewis & Short; check out the home page for some video tutorials (seems to be faster than the above)
- Whitaker’s Words ~ useful for going English-Latin (you’ll still have to conjugate and decline)
- Verbix ~ a Latin verb conjugator; type in the first person singular form for best results.
- Grammar Table ~ from the UK’s National Archives; a handy chart (like the ones in the back of Wheelock) of the various declensions, conjugations, etc; cave for North American students: the order of the nouns and adjectives is that which one sees in UK texts (i.e. not NGDA(V)A)
- Scansion – From Dickinson College Commentaries comes a series of brief videos on the basics of Latin Scansion
Of Use to Students of Greek
Of Use to Classics Students in General
- Ancient World Online Bibliographies: Classical Antiquity ~ a good starting place if you have to write a paper; this is the Wiki version specifically of the Classical Antiquity section … if you want a ‘bigger picture’, the main page is here. You might prefer the blog version.
- Son of Citation Machine ~ Classics profs (and/or the grad students who mark your papers) are sticklers for proper citation. If you’re unsure how to do it properly, this is a very useful too (ask your instructor which method they prefer)
- Tools of the Trade: Bibliographies for Roman Studies(a very useful collection of books of use to Classicists aspiring and otherwise)
- Utilia Online References ToolsAn excellent collection of online tools for Classicists
