Verba is a simple interface to A Latin Dictionary, by Lewis and Short. I've often been in class and wished that I could look up the full definition to a word, but not had Internet access at the time. My only two recourses until now were WORDS (a fine program if you need parsing help, but the definitions can be lacking) or Diogenes (a fantastic program for PHI and TLG texts as well as for the LS and LSJ, but a bit slow and bulky on my computer). Finally, however, I have taken a little initiative to solve my dilemma. My coding skills (especially for Mac) are very rudimentary, yet enough

Download link for Verba 1.3 Does not work, When clicking on Download Link on Mac Update it takes you to some Box File sharing website and it asks for link for download Verba from Person who has hosted file there. Download Verba from Developers Website.

About the download links. If you go to the developer's site the file is hosted on box.com so MU posted the correct link and not a 3rd party link as Sleek said. In an attempt to make the download be a direct link I believe part of the url was cutoff or changed or box.com links can't be direct links because even the developer's link from their own website is not direct.

Either way, simple to find the file and MU did not mistakenly link us to a randomly hosted file but instead tried to make it easier but failed to test the direct link. No big deal just thought you all might care to know. Can't comment on the software, I like the price tag though.

This is Lewis & Short in a Mac app on your Desktop. Find and download v1.2 - 10.6 and later - at

http://individual.utoronto.ca/dunning/

From the site:

"Verba: Lewis & Short’s Latin Dictionary for Mac OS X
This application provides a version of Lewis & Short’s Latin Dictionary, as digitized by Perseus, that is much faster than through a browser, and works without Internet access. It was originally written by Joshua Hayes; I have updated it to take advantage of Lion and add a few niceties to the interface. The code is open source, and will be available shortly. If you have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, Lexidium is excellent."

Verba is a simple interface to A Latin Dictionary, by Lewis and Short. I've often been in class and wished that I could look up the full definition to a word, but not had Internet access at the time. My only two recourses until now were WORDS (a fine program if you need parsing help, but the definitions can be lacking) or Diogenes (a fantastic program for PHI and TLG texts as well as for the LS and LSJ, but a bit slow and bulky on my computer). Finally, however, I have taken a little initiative to solve my dilemma. My coding skills (especially for Mac) are very rudimentary, yet enough to create this simply program for browsing Lewis and Short.

Verba is designed to do just that, viz., lookup words in LS, and nothing more (this is not and will never be a parser). It is lightweight and fast. I sincerely hope that it will be of some use for those who would also like blazing-speed access to this time-tested resource.

The download is fairly small (~12MB), but when extracted will require around 90MB of disk space due to the size of the dictionary.
