It covers over 20,000 Greek words and phrases in clear, user-friendly translations, and over 4,000 English words in common usage. The dictionary also offers help with Greek to English sentence construction and prose composition, and provides grammatical guidance with tables of irregular verbs and a glossary of grammatical terms. Additional information includes a list of numerals, a guide to pronunciation, and a map of Greece.

About the Author

James Morwood, formerly Head of Classics at Harrow School in England, is now a Fellow at Wadham College, Oxford and Grocyn Lecturer in the faculty of Literae Humaniores Faculty, University of Oxford. John Taylor is a teacher of Classics at Tonbridge School


This new dictionary will no doubt prove invaluable to those embarking on their first steps in 'real' Greek with the absence of a course book to guide them ... anyone undertaking post-beginners' courses either at university or elsewhere will also benefit greatly from this volume ... clear layout, large print and, genuine affordability ... the editors should be praised for the clarity of vision underpinning this dictionary, which will surely make a major contribution to the study of the Greek language.

Simon Murphy on
I decided to learn Classical Greek at the end of last year, and at first I bought a much larger Greek lexicon. I soon after bought the Pocket Oxford Classical Greek Dictionary and found it to be vastly superior, although somewhat smaller in vocabulary.

It quickly became the source I used most for Greek exercises, since it is very easy to refer to and contains a lot of other helpful information.

My only real complaint about the dictionary is that the 'grammar' section that such a language book shoul contain can only be found in a separate volume, which is about the same price again.
