Perseus

Latin Lookup Bookmarklet

My friend Ben and I (but mostly Ben – I’m the idea guy), made this Latin Lookup bookmarklet.

When you encounter an unknown Latin word online, highlight it and click this bookmarklet. Then sit back as the script automatically finds the word in Perseus and loads the page for you.  Magicus.

Load this code into the space for a new bookmark and click away:

javascript:(function(){q=document.getSelection();%20if(!q){void(q=prompt(‘Wikipedia%20keywords:’,”))};%20if(q)location.href=’http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=’+escape(q)+’&la=la’})()
