 I do not think the kind of searches you would like are possible with the
TLG. What comes close to meeting this expectation is the Perseus site, where
you have the possibility of quickly turning to the English version of the
classical texts or searching the English text and reverting to the Greek


 The TLG is an awesome tool, provided one is proficient enough with Greek.

I would like to know if anyone could recommend a software tool for
searching the TLG Disc E. There seem to be quite few tools, but I am not

of words, certain fixed expressions or morphological searches).

  Many thanks
