Philologic Information and Help

Welcome to Philologic. Here are some tips to make your search more productive:
  • For pattern matching one may employ wildcard characters (e.g., widow* retrieves widow, widowe, widowhood, etc.).
  • To search without considering diacritics turn on "Caps Lock" and type in all uppercase (e.g., NAIVETE finds both naivete and naïveté).
    • But but but: Greek is accent sensitive! Use Unicode only.
  • Selecting similar word search applies to all words in the database.
