Welcome to the new version of the electronic Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary, ePSD2, a Sumerian portal.
Here we provide listings of over 12,000 Sumerian words, phrases and names, occurring in almost 100,000 distinct forms a total of over 2.27 million times in the corpus of texts indexed for the Dictionary. The corpus covers, directly or indirectly, about 100,000 of the 134,000+ known Sumerian texts.
For a quick start, open up the main Sumerian glossary and try typing English, Sumerian or transliterations into the search bar. If you're new to Oracc, the Oracc "Getting Started" page explains the essentials of Oracc data and the interface you are using now.
The About page gives an overview of the various components of ePSD2 with links to help you find your way around.
ePSD2 development is ongoing. See the News page for what changes between the releases, and see the What's Next? page for some of the things we are planning.
