Hello people, I'm Lia , a Classical, Byzantine and Modern Greek philologist from Athens Greece. This is Hofmann's Etymological Dictionary, a reference lexicon that anyone who studies Greek and Ancient Greek must have in his library.

Hope you like it!

Thank you very much!
In Christ,

Dear Father,

You need a pdf reader to read documents with the *.pdf extension. You can get the Adobe reader, or a lighter one - www.thefreewindows.com/?tag=pdf" target="_blank">https://www.thefreewindows.com/?tag=pdf

Dear George,

Thank you very much for your reply. I do have Adobe 8.1 pro, however the problem was in the extention .rar of the download which is a zip program that I did not have. After I figured out what I was missing, I did download a free rar unzip and it worked out fine. I was able to open the lexicon and now have it in my "pdf" files.

Thank you very much for your reply!

In Christ,

Fr. Athanasios

Well, perhaps this Etymological Dictionary is protected by the copyright, remember that by international convention the copyright expires 70 years after the death of the autor, only then a book or any other product of human mind becomes of public domain.

Anyhow, don't be afraid, you can find quite a lot of books the copyright of which has expired, on GoogleBooks and on the InternetArchive; in the specific instance, I found and downloaded the Etymologicon Graecae Linguae Gudianum, a good book. If you search carefully you will find quite a lot of greek books, I have downloaded a small bibliotek of these.
