Dictionary of Old English

Connect to database

Description The Dictionary of Old English (DOE) defines the vocabulary of the first centuries (600-1150 A.D.) of the English language, using today's most advanced technology. The DOE complements the Middle English Dictionary (which covers the period 1100-1500 A.D.) and the Oxford English Dictionary, the three together providing a full description of the vocabulary of English. Under the direction of editors Angus Cameron, Ashley Crandell Amos, and now Antonette diPaolo Healey, the Dictionary has published (as of 2008) four major research tools, the Dictionary of Old English Corpus on the World Wide Web, the fascicles for the letters A-G on microfiche, the Dictionary of Old English: A to G online. More than one third of the Dictionary -- eight of the 22 letters of the Old English alphabet--has been published, and more than half of the total entries have been written to date.
