In response to dozens of questions regarding where to practice Latin, we have created the exedrium. This is chatroom for practicing Latin and Ancient Greek in a relaxed and friendly environment. It is an experiment that we will run for 60 days to see if there is any interest and if it works.


Cum multi nos interrogarent ubi se in lingua Latina scribenda facile exercere possent, re multum ac diu considerata hunc locum quem exedrium nominavimus condidimus, ubi homines Latine vel Graece inter se otiose atque amice colloquerentur. Per sexaginta circiter dies hic locus patebit dum videbimus num placeat et quae volumus praestare valeat.

Smith & Hall’s English-Latin Dictionary


The English-Latin dictionary of Smith & Hall, originally published in 1871 under the title A Copious and Critical English-Latin Dictionary, is widely regarded as the best and most extensive lexicon for translating from English into Latin ever written. Thanks to the effort of Johan Winge, it is now, for the first time, available online in a fully digitized and searchable form, exlusively here on Latinitium!
