Donnegan’s Greek Dictionary Updated

A picture of the front page of Donnegan's Greek Dictionary

An updated version of Donnegan’s A New Greek and English Lexicon; Principally on the plan of the Greek and German Lexicon of Schneider is available.

This work has a niche in defining philosophical and platonic Greek words.

This digital file was originally scanned by Google but I have improved it in three ways:

  • An alphabetical index has been added to the file so that it is easier to navigate through the book to find a word.

  • unimportant non-text pages deleted and the image files were optimized to speed up processing speed. It also made the overall file size much smaller

  • corrected a Google scanning error where 43 pages were duplicated.

For those who have already downloaded the previous version, it is highly recommended that this dictionary be downloaded and overwrite or delete the older one.

Click on this link for the new version, A New Greek and English Lexicon; Principally on the plan of the Greek and German Lexicon of Schneider by James Donnegan. Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Co. 1836.

Once you have the file open on your computer, make sure to click on the bookmark icon to see the alphabetical index.

A full list of ancient Greek dictionaries can be found at Ancient Digitized Greek Dictionaries.

It has been noted that there are further pages out of order. Please contact me with any pages mis-scanned or improperly paginated so that this file can be improved.

  1. I have a copy of the 1836 printing of Donnegan’s Greek/English dictionary. Do you have any idea of this volume’s worth?
