This research project has been running since October 2007. The aim of the project is twofold: firstly, to search for, collect and photocopy all available print editions of dictionaries and glossaries (individual or part of other print editions of texts) which contain language material from Modern Greek literary texts of the period ranging from the late 17th century (that is, after the period covered by the Dictionary of medieval folk Greek literature by E. Kriaras) to the foundation of the Modern Greek state (in the early 1830s); and secondly, to catalogue language material from texts for which no glossaries/dictionaries are available.

 The project's ultimate goal is to create an adequate archive (a lexical data base), which can be used to compile an (initially electronic, then print) interpretative dictionary of Modern Greek literature of the period.
