Latin Dictionary’s Journey: A to Zythum in 125 Years (and Counting) - The New York Times
Latin Dictionary’s Journey: A to Zythum in 125 Years (and Counting)
Researchers in Germany have been working on the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae since the 1890s. They hope to finish in 2050, but that might be optimistic.
Annalisa Quinn. NYTimes. November 30, 2019

The first entry, for the letter A, was published in 1900. The T.L.L. is expected to reach its final word — “zythum,” an Egyptian beer — by 2050. A scholarly project of painstaking exactness and glacial speed, it has so far produced 18 volumes of huge pages with tiny text, the collective work of nearly 400 scholars, many of them long since dead. The letters Q and N were set aside, because they begin too many difficult words, so researchers will have to go back and work on those, too.

Middle English Dictionary
On March 13, 2019, we began redirecting all search traffic for the Middle English Dictionary and HyperBibliography to the new site. Because of a misunderstanding, we unfortunately did this without announcing the change first. We apologize for the confusion this must have caused.
