Here are links to the DCC Latin List itself:
- The DCC Latin List provides the 1000-word vocabulary, listed alphabetically, with macrons, essential forms, and a brief English definition.
- DCC Latin List Methodology. This page provides a helpful explanation of the sources used in creating the list, starting with Diederich but with important supplements and adjustments.
- Coming soon: As work continues on the DCC site, there will be vocabulary lists by parts of speech and semantic groupings, along with other materials to help Latin students who are still in the process of mastering the basic vocabulary. I will update this blog post as those materials become available.
Meanwhile, speaking for myself, I am profoundly grateful to the editorial group at DCC for this list. Readers of this blog probably know that I have been waiting on a list like this for years - something that is frequency-driven, not textbook-specific, and freely available to one and all via the Internet. I hope it will allow me to produce a truly reader-friendly collection of distichs this summer, to be followed up by more reader-friendly Latin projects in future summers, too (I can begin work on easy-to-read fables at last, guided by a core vocabulary list, and I also want to update Latin Via Proverbs based on this vocabulary-driven approach). And for those of you who have not yet taken a look at the wonderful texts already available at DCC, you are in for a treat: enjoy!
