Description

Alpheios builds evidence-based, open-source software to support worldwide study of classical languages and literatures. The Alpheios Reading Tools enhance any text you read in the browser by adding clickable access to dictionary entries, morphological analyses, inflection tables and grammars for any Latin or Ancient Greek word. A subset of these resources are available for Classical Arabic and Persian. Personal vocabulary lists and learning games will be added in coming releases.

The Alpheios tools can be installed as extensions to the Chrome and Firefox browsers (further instructions here). Support for the Safari browser and mobile devices is under development.

Alpheios will also be released as a Javascript library which can be embedded in pages published on the web to provide access to its functionality without requiring use of the browser extensions.

Other Alpheios modules include a treebank editor and a translation alignment editor..
