A series of about 70 cosmestic alterations, edits, and corrections have been made to the Latin core vocabulary. No words have been added or removed. It was a matter of adding or removing some errant macra, fixing some formatting inconsistencies, and in a few cases adjusting lemmata and defintions for the sake of clarity. The most significant altered definition is that for modo, which formerly read "just, just now" but now reads: "just, just now; modo ... modo: now ... now, at one moment ... at another, sometimes ... sometimes." The vast majority of these improvements are due to the superb proof reading and philological acumen of Alex Lee (see below). I continue to take full responsibility for all remaining errors and infelicities, and would be grateful for notice of any that you find (email@example.com).
Both the Greek and Latin core lists are now available via the smart (and free) flashcard program Mnemosyne, thanks to Alex Lee, a graduate student in classics at the University of Chicago. This excellent program includes a tagging feature, which allows for easy targeted learning of groups of cards, and most importantly it adjusts to your learning progress to give you cards that you are less familiar with more frequently. Highly recommended. Alex has written a detailed set-up tutorial on the DCC blog. Thank you Alex!
The verbs in the Greek core vocabulary lists are now fully equipped with principal parts. This task, which should have happened last summer, was undertaken better late than never by Chris Francese, with a lot of help from the verb list in Hayes and Nimis' edition of Lucian's True Story. I checked things with the TLG, and the final list was greatly improved thanks to the eagle-eyed proof reading of Eric Casey. For more on the principal parts in the DCC Greek list, see this post on the DCC blog, along with the interesting comments in the comment field below.
Peter Sipes has kindly made available a Google spreadsheet containing the DCC Core Latin Vocabulary.
Members of the DCC team presented a NITLE seminar, hosted online via NITLE’s videoconferencing platform, and available to NITLE members. Official description:
"Collaborative Digital Scholarship Projects: The Liberal Art of Drupal." This seminar features members of the team behind the text annotation site Dickinson College Commentaries (faculty director, web developer, and students) who will discuss the problems, pitfalls, and opportunities of collaborating with Drupal in a liberal arts context. This seminar will be especially interesting to those interested in creating collaborative digital scholarship projects in a small college setting, as well as faculty in classical studies and other disciplines that work with text and commentaries.
Here is the Powerpoint presentation (2MB).
