Diapantos

How can I best learn new vocabulary items? What aids are there and what pitfalls should be avoided? How does a beginner learn to use a lexicon?

Like any other word, its meaning depends on the context in which it's used.

Are you aware of the LSJ lexicon online? http://www.tlg.uci.edu/lsj/

No I wasn't.

But I tried pasting "Diapantos" into the search box, and doing a search, and it looks like I'll need to get some kind of Greek font software to do that?

Could someone give me a brief definition?

Does it mean without interruption, or without end?

"Adv., later spelling of διὰ παντός"

Tlg lsj should accept latin characters. Just type "diapantos". w = ω, x = χ, c = ξ etc. It gives you a drop-down list of suggestions. Use Up/Down and Enter keys to choose one. With "diapantos" you get only "διαπαντός"
