The Whorish Mother of All Harlot Lexicons

Gail Riplinger, Hazardous Materials: Greek and Hebrew Study Dangers (Ararat: A.V. Publications 2008), p. 83:
The Liddell-Scott Greek-English Lexicon is the whorish MOTHER of all harlot lexicons.
I owe the reference to Christopher Stray, "Liddell and Scott: Myths and Markets," in Christopher Stray, ed., Classical Dictionaries: Past, Present and Future (London: Duckworth, 2010), pp. 94-118 (at 101).
