    I am happy to be able to announce to you that there is now a fully digitized version of Smith and Hall's great English-Latin dictionary available at https://www.latinitium.com/smithhall

    As you will see, the text, which was proofread by yours truly, has been supplied with clickable links between the various articles, which of course greatly speeds up browsing the dictionary, as well as links to the source texts at Perseus, which will come in handy when you want to double check the translation and learn more about the context where it appears. Enjoy!

    I can find the page, but I can't find the dictionary. What am I doing wrong?

    Ah, there's a search bar right above the introduction. Hm, maybe we should make it stand out more.

    This is what I see Screen Shot 2017-10-13 at 06.32.32 .png

    But even if I put in words like mensa, amo, amare all I get is this:

    Lol, I got confused in just the same way as you at first... This is an English-Latin dictionary, not Latin-English, so you must enter an English word, not a Latin one.

    It's an English-Latin dictionary, so try with English words instead. ;) But you should also get suggestions in a drop-down menu while typing, which helps a lot to find the right word. Do you see it? Perhaps it doesn't work correctly in all browsers and platforms?

    Fantastic :) And I even found an expression that I was puzzling over the exact grammar of yesterday: cordi est

    What if you made the prompt text: Enter English Search Word?

    I do. I just didn't notice it the first time, probably because I typed too quickly.
