This template uses the page title to automatically determine the URL via which to link to LSJ online at Perseus project. For those pages where this does not work, this template has one paramater, which is the entry word Romanized in a specific format:

Breathing marks and accents immediately follow the letter they occur on:

  • Rough breathing mark is (
  • Smooth breathing mark is )
  • Acute accent is /
  • Circumflex is =
  • Iota subscript is |

Most of the letters are pretty straight-forward, but a few that aren’t include:

  • η is h
  • θ is q
  • ξ is c
  • υ is u (not y)
  • φ is f
  • χ is x
  • ψ is y
  • ω is w


  • {{R:LSJ|1=i)w=ta}} - ἰῶτα - note the use of "1=" to prevent side effects of the occurrence of "=" in the markup
  • {{R:LSJ|a)karh/s}} - ἀκαρής
  • {{R:LSJ|parw%7Cdi/a}} - παρῳδία - note the trick with %7C standing for "|".
  • {{R:LSJ|farmakei/a1}} - φαρμακεία - note the "1" added to the end, as there are two entries
  • {{R:LSJ|D.H.lhth/r}} - δηλητήρ - the string "D.H.lhth/r" had to be found in the Perseus project
