Suppose I want to search for a certain word, expression or structure in the Latin literature. What online tools can I use for such purposes? Where can I find a large collection of Latin texts in easily searchable form?
To describe the source or tool, please answer at least these questions:
- How is the corpus limited? (Is it only classical Latin, for example?)
- What kinds of searches can be made?
- How can I link to a specific passage that I want to cite?
- Is it connected to some other tools (like a dictionary or a full text translation) that make usage easier?
You do not need to limit your description to answering these questions.
Please give only one corpus per answer. If you have many suggestions, give multiple answers — but read the other answers to avoid duplicates. This way people can vote on individual corpora, causing the best ones to rise up and the worst ones to sink down, so that we can easily find the most loved dictionaries.
Note about resource questions:
Broad resource questions like this are generally not allowed on this site. The community chooses a select few to avoid an overflow of questions of this kind. If you have an opinion on what resource questions should be asked next, post a suggestion in this meta post or vote the existing ones. The ones to be asked will be chosen from that list according to their number of votes. If you have ideas about listing resources on this site in general, you can contribute to this meta discussion.
In particular, if you would like to ask a similar resource request question, do not just ask it, but post a suggestion in the mentioned meta post instead.
