Certainly. The standard work for English-speakers is a lexicon first
published well over a century ago and still published by Oxford U.P.,
Liddell-Scott; it's been revised several times in the course of this
century, most recently by Glare about three years ago. A somewhat older
version of it is online for consultation at the Perseus web site at Tufts
University, and it is not infrequent that info from that site gets cited
here on B-Greek when lexicographical questions arise.
