Tip for getting plain-text to LSJ definitions faster

Post by Stephen Hughes » March 15th, 2015, 12:22 am

If you have a text written in Unicode (or some other formats), and want to look up words in LSJ, rather than manually looking up each word, you can cut and paste it into this Hopperizer (hyper-link-to-LSJ-erizer to be more descriptive). Press link-only. The words will become hyperlinks. Click on them and grammatical and dictionary information will come up in the right half of the screen.

προσεχέτω χρήστης: As with any short-cut to satisfaction or happiness, I suggest that this tip be used sparingly and in a prudent and self-controlled manner.

I use the Hopperizer frequently. Great tool. I also use it times for spell checking. I have had trouble with glitches in the LibreOffice Ancient Greek Spellchecker and can't get them sorted out.

I have the impression that the Hopperizer is finite and static - rather than individually analysing forms according to algorithms, it simply looks them up from an enormous pre-prepared list. Is that true.
