Middle English Dictionary: T.9 - Middle English Dictionary S. (Paperback)Robert E. Lewis (editor)
- Not available
The Middle English Dictionary is a monumental scholarly endeavor that began more than fifty years ago and is expected to be completed in the late-1990s. The task of the editors compiling the dictionary is to document the English language from just after the Norman Conquest up to the introduction of the printing press at the end of the 1400s. With that innovation the language became more or less standardized, but during the Middle Ages the language was evolving under the stress of events and social change, particularly as French culture was absorbed into the language. These were truly the formative years of the English language, and they present major challenges to lexicographers.
Published volumes include all fascicles from A.1 through T.10, plus the Plan and Bibliography.
