    Do you have a favorite online English/Latin dictionary you use most often? If so, which one?

    Thank you

    As long as you check the back translation, Whitaker's Words is very quick to look up.

    What, do "A Copious and Critical English-Latin Dictionary" and "A Copious and Critical English-Latin Lexicon" not look similar in name to you?

    Diſturbingly ſimilaro_O but I do tend to rely on Smith & Hall.

    I've mentioned and cited Riddle and Arnold's lexicon several times, I think. That and Smith's dictionary are both useful. I suspect more comprehensive English-Latin dictionaries than these will never be written.

    I've got an early 18th century Sallust that once belonged to Arnold.

    Oh, sorry; somehow I thought your "confused" face was for Gedwimere calling them "similar in name", rather than for the similarity itself.

    At the beginning of the preface to Smith & Hall the authors quickly dismiss Riddle and Arnold. That, along with the almost identical names, makes me wonder if there was something deeper and more personal.

    I have only used Smith & Hall, which I own, so I'm unable to comment further.
