William Whitaker's Words Online

William Whitaker's Words

Project Website


This is a cleaned-up version of the port of William Whitaker's WORDS programme, a Latin-English dictionary with inflectional morphology support; the original author passed away in 2010, so any and all help maintaining the software as development and execution environments evolve would be greatly appreciated.

Effectively, this is an exercise in digital preservation.


Help is needed maintaining the code for future users; in particular, it does not currently support vowel length, so it may be necessary to gather a group of Latin experts to adjust its lexicon of several thousand words.

If you contribute, please be sure to indicate your assent to redistributing your contributions under the same terms as the existing software; this will minimise copyright hassles in the future.
