This is the archive which formed the basis for the compilation of the Dictionary of Standard Modern Greek. The preliminary work concerning the collection of data began in 1971, which resulted in the creation of a first corpus consisting of tens of thousands of index cards from the indexing of dictionaries and glossaries (e.g., those of Proia, Ch. Patsi, Philologists, the one-volume dictionary of Dimitrakos, etc.).
Later on, more cards were added from the indexing of articles, children’s books, special dictionaries, scientific and technical editions, newspapers, magazines, etc.
