Oh wow, that’s amazing. It’ll be an incredible resource, we often find usages in the Jatakas that are unattested elsewhere, and the “worldly” context of many stories gives us an idea of the colloquial meanings of terms.

And what may be most exciting for regular readers is this statement from the above announcement:

Since the first volume I have also added these translations into the The Revised Jātaka Translation also.

Additionally I have extracted some of the word definitions, and made a separate appendix for this material, which provides contextual definitions of many hundreds of words.
