You can view the Life Lexicon on-line, or download it in various forms, as shown in the table below. If you want the Lexicon in HTML, note that the single-page version can be difficult to use on some older systems due to its size, in which case you may prefer to use the multipage version. If you are a GNU Emacs user, then the ASCII version with its lifelex.el is recommended.

|download plain text (ASCII) version||87K zip archive|

Note that the source distribution consists of the ASCII version plus the files needed to generate the HTML versions. This is unlikely to be of much use to anyone but me.
A Russian translation of the Life Lexicon by Nicolay Beluchenko is also available. (Zip file of Russian translation, 167K.) Nicolay has also compiled a collection of named objects from the Lexicon (last updated 2006 April 1).
If you would like to receive notification of new releases of the Life Lexicon, you can subscribe to the Life Lexicon mailing list by sending a blank e-mail to LifeLexiconfirstname.lastname@example.org. This mailing list is only used for notification of new releases, so the traffic on it should amount to about two or three messages a year (judging by the past rate of new releases, which, however, is very erratic).
