The on-line LSJ has a nice feature in being able to search for
Greek words under English definitions. If you enter "plagiarism"
you would get links to KLOPH, LOGOKLOPIA, and METATHESIS. Under
"sincerity," one finds hAPLOTHS, AFQARSIA, ALHQEIA, APLASTIA,
these words are close the English meaning, but not quite spot
on, so one should please follow up on the citations and read
the words in context.
