To search for a headword in any language, type the word or part of a word in the bar labeled “All columns” or “Lemma”. A headword is any text printed in bold in the Thesaurus glossarum. All relevant results will appear in the lemma list below.

In Latin headwords, “U” and “u” are used consistently for both the consonant (V/v) and the vowel (U/u). (The original distinction in CGL between upper-case U and V has been disregarded.)

To search for Greek, please omit all diacritics. E.g. typing “ωδη” will return “ᾠδή”.

Editorial deletions and corrections to the lemma indicated by square and angle brackets are disregarded in the search. E.g. “abiurare” will return “abiur[g]are” and “abligurrire” will return “abligur<r>ire”.

By default a “simple” search will search for the text in any part of a headword. Selecting “word start” will match the text only if it coincides with the beginning of the lemma, “word end” if it coincides with the end. By default the search is insensitive to case and to word order. To turn off case insensitivity, unclick the box marked “a=A”. To match a series of words only in the specified order, unclick the box “xy=yx”. To turn on regular expression searching, click the box labeled “*?”.

Individual columns can be searched separately. For instance, to search only in the Index Graeco-Latinus, in the search box “Lingua” type “Graecum” (or under “Select cell value” select “Graecum”). To see occurrences only in a specific glossary, such as Pseudo-Philoxenus, in the search box “Loca in glossariis” type “Ps.-Phil.”. To see occurrences on a specific page of CGL, type the volume and page, e.g. “II 543”.

The columns have the following values:

  • Lemma: the form of a bolded word as printed in the Thesaurus glossarum.

    ⚠ In general only the words bolded in the print CGL are searchable in this way. Parenthetical remarks that provide manuscript variants or conjectures have generally not been included here, but they are searchable in the underlying XML.

  • Thesaurus glossarum: the volume and page in the Thesaurus glossarum where the lemma occurs. Click on the button to see the page containing the full entry.
  • Lingua: the language of the index or section of the Thesaurus glossarum in which the lemma occurs (not its source language).
  • Loca in glossariis: individual occurrences of the lemma in individual glossaries in CGL, as automatically extracted from the Thesaurus glossarum entry. Click on each button to see a scanned page of the occurrence in situ. Each occurrence is identified by a short abbreviation (e.g. “Ps.-Phil.” for “Pseudo-Philoxenus”) and the CGL volume, page, and line number. When no occurrences are displayed, either the entry contains a cross-reference to a named lemma rather than to a volume and page number or there is an error in the underlying data. Please report these by clicking “Submit corrections”.
