    I am a long time Latin learner — since 1963 high school (I’m 75 now but only at a beginning intermediate level). Is there a dictionary or reference that marks syllables? Also have you evaluated online dictionaries/references. I have found https://logeion.uchicago.edu/ which you recommended on another post, but I could not find any explanation for “collocations” on that site.
    I have enjoyed your blog posts and use them quite a lot.
    How far are you in your PhD program?
    Thanks for all your work.

    1. I’m so glad to hear that you are enjoying my posts, Caren! I don’t know of a dictionary that marks syllables off the top of my head. Latin syllables are fairly predictable, so I think dictionary-markers don’t want to spend time on it. I haven’t published a post on online dictionaries and resources – YET. It’s on the list of future posts! In the meantime, you can find very basic collocation information in the right sidebar of the desktop version of Logeion. I am in the 5th year of my PhD program, so one more to go!

  2. This was very helpful. I was able to find a great dictionary for my 8th grade son who is just starting. I’m helping him learn and surprised how much I remember from my year and a half of college Latin from over 30 years ago. I’m tempted to get Lewis & Short and start learning again!

    1. Hi Luke, I’m so glad this post was helpful! You should definitely start learning again yourself, too. Latin is so much fun 🙂
