I think that I stumbled upon a web search engine with an index of many esperanto books. You could search for phrases, and it replied with findings in these books, complete with title, author and so on.

I cannot find it anymore. Is my memory betraying me?

    I don't have the names of these on mind, but I think what you're thinking of is a corpus. There are many, but simply searching "Esperanto corpus" should give you more luck.

Are you perhaps thinking of the Tekstaro? I think it would sort of do what you want except that it has a fairly limited selection of books so it’s more useful just to check language usage rather than find a particular title.

  • Yes, this was what I meant! Interesting that you find the book selection limited. Now that I now the term “corpus”, I am trying to expand my selection. Thanks!

Besides the Tekstaro I find very useful the Corpora Collection by the Leipzig University. Apparently you can only search one word at a time. If someone knows how to search more than one word at a time or even sentences, please let us all know.
