How to Use The Bridge

Making your customized list is as easy as selecting your language and your target work(s) (“what are you reading”?). You can then chose a selection from the target work(s). If you wish, you can exclude or match words from one or more lists, textbooks, or texts. Excluding yields the words in your target work(s) that do not appear in the excluded work(s); matching yields only those words that appear in your target work(s) and one or more other work(s) you have selected. Once you have your list, you can add information (frequency, part of speech, links to Logeion, etc.), filter by morphology (e.g. part of speech, conjugation, declension, etc.), and then use on-lineprint, or export your list.

Lists: Lists include any vocabulary core or high-frequency vocabulary list.

Textbooks: textbooks include the required vocabulary for each chapter, as well as supplemental readings for some books. We are working to incorporate vocabularies for select readings in textbooks as well.

Texts: vocabularies for continuous ancient and modern Latin and Greek texts.

Detailed Information about Texts

Details about texts, including their structure (i.e. how small a piece can you select–a book? a line? a poem? a sentence), any special attributes of the texts (e.g. how irregular numbering is handled), and how the vocabulary data was created, is available on the Details About Texts page.

If my text has irregular chapters (e.g. 2b), how do I indicate a section of the text?

If you want to select lettered sections within a chapter, simply append these to the chapter after a period: e.g. 1a = 1.a.
