A GREEK AND ENGLISH DICTIONARY,

Comprising all the words in the writings of the most popular Greek authors ;
with the difficult inflections in tliem and in the Septuagint and New Testa-
ment; designed for the use of Schools and the under-graduate course of
a Collegiate Education. Second Edition.

TO WHICH IS NOW ADDED,

AN ENGLISH-GREEK VOCABULARY.

BY THE REV. JOHN GROVES.

In 1 thick Vol. 8vo. containing 700 pages, closely printed, price 15s. boards.

In the arrangement of this work the alphabetical method has been adopted,
as best suited to the capacity of young learners. Immediately after each
word is placed its form of declension or conjugation, together with any
peculiarity attending it : such as the Attic genitive of contracted nouns, the
future or perfect of any dialect peculiar to certain verbs, &c. Next is placed
the derivation or composition of the word. Particular attention has been paid
to this part of the work. In most Lexicons the bare theme is usually set
at the end of the word, without any attempt to shew how it forms a part of
the word to which it.is thus attached, and often without any signification in
Latin or English; but in this, the composition or derivation, generally fol-
lowed by the original theme, is set before the English signification, so as
to catch the eye. The English of these words is always given, so that the
connexion between them and the present word may be perceived, and a
judgment formed how the one is deduced from the other.

The English significations of the Greek word follow pext. These have
been selected from a careful comparison of the Latin of Stephens's The-
saurus, Scapula, Damm, Schleusner, and other Lexicons. In this part
two or three synonymes have been given for each signification ; and the
most usual or vernacular expressions have been introduced, that thus the
Greek sentence may fall into familiar English. After the significations, are
subjoined any irregularities or varieties arising from dialect, &c. j and some
of the more difficult inflections of each word are added.

This Dictionary will answer for the study of Homer, Lucian, Xenophon,
auch of the Greek Tragedies as are usually read in Schools, the Septuagint,
and the New Testament. Every Λvord in this last book, Avith every variation
of case, gender, number, and mood, will be found in it, and the quantity
and doubtful vowels are carefully marked.

Bjr the alphabetical arrangement which Mr. Duncan has accomplished
with so much pains, and so much credit to himself, this valuable work is
for the first time rendered accessible to every student of Greek ; while, by the
derivative being given, and a list of Damm's arrangement being added to the
work, the more advanced students are enabled to trace with facility the Avi-
thor's etymology. The German idioms have been retained, but with an
English Translation added, which renders this Dictionary, termed by the
late Professor Young " a divine book -the Bible of the Greek language,'* the
most valuable and agreeable assistant to the Greek student either in this
Country or the Continent. And the Publishers have pleasure in announcinif
that they are enabled to reduce the price from four to three guineas.
