  A DICTIONARY OF THE FIRST, OR

  OLDEST WORDS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE:

  CONSISTING OF

  An Alphabetical Inventory of

  SECRETARY TO THE PHILOLOGICAL SOCIETY.

PREFACE.


The present publication may be considered as the foundation-stone of the
Historical and Literary portion of the Philological Society’s proposed
English Dictionary. Its appearance in a separate form has been
necessitated by the nature of the scheme, on which that work is being
constructed. Without entering into details, which will be found in the
Society’s published Prospectus,[1] it will be sufficient for the present
purpose to mention, that the raw material of the Dictionary, the words and
authorities, are being brought together by a number of independent
collectors, for whom it is consequently necessary to provide some common
standard of comparison, whereby each may ascertain what he is to extract,
and what to reject, from the author, or work, he has undertaken. This
standard for works of earlier date than 1526 is furnished by the following
pages, which contain an alphabetical inventory of every word found in the
printed English literature of the 13th century. As, however, a mere index
verborum would but inadequately fulfil its object, a certain amount of
explanatory and etymological matter has been added, which it is hoped may
render the work more generally interesting and useful than could otherwise
have been the case. It is only proper to add that English literature, as
distinguished from Semi-Saxon, is assumed to commence about the middle of
the 13th century.

    [1] London, Trübner and Co., Paternoster Row, price 6d.

All words are arranged under their modern forms, where such exist, but the
older forms, except where utterly unimportant, are always noticed. The
more remarkable of these older forms are also entered in the Glossary in
their alphabetical order, with cross references to that under which the
word is discussed. Thus under ‘Hymn’ and ‘Isle’ will be found the forms
‘ympne’ and ‘ydle;’ but ‘ympne’ and ‘ydle’ appear also in their proper
places in the Glossary. Obsolete words are of course entered as they are
spelt in the passage whence they are taken, a rule which applies as much
to different forms of the same word, as to different words. As to the
etymological matter, nothing further as a general rule has been attempted
than to indicate the nearest cognate, or cognates, of the particular word;
but it has not been thought necessary, or desirable, to load the Glossary
with illustrations of this nature in very simple cases. I have to thank
Hensleigh Wedgwood, Esq., for many kind and valuable suggestions in this
part of my work.

My best thanks are also due to the Rev. J. Eastwood, the Rev. W. H.
Herford, to my colleague Mr F. J. Furnivall, and to Messrs M’Ewan and
Harrison, for their valuable assistance in the formation of separate
indexes to several of the works comprised in this Glossary. Their
respective shares in the work are pointed out in the List of Books and
Editions, which will be found in page v.

And I cannot terminate this brief preface without expressing my deep sense
of the obligations I am under to Sir F. Madden, not merely for the help of
his invaluable editions of Laȝamon and Havelok, without which this work
would have been far less complete than it now is, but also for much kind
personal advice and assistance, which probably few, if any, living
philologists beside himself would have been competent to bestow. It only
remains for me to add that, although no pains have been spared to render
the book as complete as possible, I cannot but expect that some omissions
and errors will be discovered, more especially as the largest and most
laborious portion of the work was carried on during a long period of ill
health. I shall feel very grateful to those who discover any addenda, if
they will kindly communicate them to me for insertion hereafter in the
Dictionary itself.

⁂ All the following pieces are cited by the number of the verse, except
where the contrary is expressly mentioned.


_Havelok the Dane._ Edited by Sir F. Madden, for the Roxburgh Club. (By Mr
H. Coleridge.)

_Geste of Kyng Horn._ Edited by M. Michel, for the Bannatyne Club. (By Mr

    Romances is taken from a later MS., and differs considerably from the
    Bannatyne text.)

_Kyng Alysaunder._ In Weber’s Metrical Romances, vol. I. (By Mr H.
Coleridge.)

_The Land of Cokaygne._ In Hickes’s Thesaurus, vol. I. p. 231. (By Mr
Furnivall.)

  _The Life of St Margaret_ (cited by stanzas), } in Hickes’s Thesaurus,
                                                    vol. I. pp. 224, 233.

Mr Furnivall and Mr H. Coleridge.)

_Fragment on Popular Science_, from the Early English Metrical Lives of
Saints, in Mr Wright’s ‘Popular Treatises on Science.’ (By Mr H.
Coleridge.)

_Specimens of Lyric Poetry_, temp. Edw. I. Edited by Mr Wright, for the
Percy Society. (By Mr M’Ewan.)

Mr H. Coleridge.)

_Political Songs_, temp. Hen. III. and Edw. I. Edited by Mr Wright, for

_Religious Songs_, printed at the end of the Percy Society’s edition of
the Owl and Nightingale. (By Mr H. Coleridge.)

_Dialogue between the Soul and Body._ In the Appendix to Mapes’s Poems,
edited by Mr Wright, for the Camden Society, p. 334. (By the Rev. J.
Eastwood.)

_The Early English Psalter._ Edited by the Rev. J. Stevenson, for the

_The Legend of St Brandan._ Edited by Mr Wright, for the Percy Society.
(By the Rev. J. Eastwood.)

_The Life and Martyrdom of Thomas Beket._ Edited by Mr Black, for the
Percy Society. (By the Rev. J. Eastwood.)

    (Owing to the gross inaccuracy of the marginal numbering in the
    printed edition of this poem, it has been found necessary to go over
    the whole afresh, and to cite according to the amended reckoning. The
    following data will assist the reader:--The first error occurs in page
    64, where the line numbered 1280 should be 1282. The second occurs in
    page 100, where ten lines are dropped, and 1961 is printed for 1973,
    the true number. The third will be found in page 110, where 2049 is
    made to succeed 2139, and after this, of course, the confusion is
    hopeless. The exact number of lines in the poem is 2515, while the
    printed numbers give only 2398. Readers are therefore requested to
    renumber their copies from page 64 onwards, before attempting to
    verify the references in the Glossary.)

The following pieces will be printed in the second part of the
Philological Society’s Transactions for 1858, and are therefore included
in the Glossary. I am indebted to the kindness of my friend and colleague,
Mr Furnivall, for the loan of his transcripts.

_A Moral Ode._ MS. Egerton, 613. Cited by stanzas.

    (Hickes printed Extracts from this Ode, in his Thesaurus, vol. I. p.
    222, from one of the Digby MSS.; but his text is somewhat different
    from that of the Egerton MS., and omits nine stanzas contained in the
    latter.)

  _A Sermon_ (cited by stanzas),                                }
  _Signa Ante Judicium_,                                        }
  _A Fragment on the Seven Sins_,                               } MS. Harl.
  _The Ten Commandments_,                                       } 913.
  _Christ on the Cross_,                                        }
  _A Poem on Miracles_, containing a Tale of an Oxford Student, }
  _The Fall and Passion_,                                       }

  _The Legends of_           }
      _St Dunstan_,          }
      _St Katherine_,        }
      _St Andrew_,           }
      _St Lucy_,             } from MS. Harl. 2277.
      _St Swithin_,          }
      _St Edward_,           }
      _Pilate_,              }
      _Judas Iscariot_,      }

A few references will also be found to the Manuel des Pecches of Robert
Brunne, now being edited by Mr Furnivall, for the Roxburgh Club, but the
proof-sheets came into my hands too late to allow of anything like a
complete analysis of the language of the poem.
