NOTE


This glossary does not aim at completeness, and it is not primarily a
glossary of rare or 'hard' words. A good working knowledge of Middle
English depends less on the possession of an abstruse vocabulary than on
familiarity with the ordinary machinery of expression--with the precise
forms and meanings that common words may assume; with the uses of such
innocent-looking little words as the prepositions _of_ and _for_; with
idiomatic phrases, some fresh-minted and some worn thin, but all likely
to recur again and again in an age whose authors took no pains to avoid
usual or hackneyed turns of expression. These are the features of the
older language which an English reader is predisposed to pass over,
satisfied with a half-recognition: and space seldom permits of their
adequate treatment in a compendious general dictionary or the word-list
to a single text. So in making a glossary for use with a book itself
designed to be a preparation for the reading of complete texts, I have
given exceptionally full treatment to what may rightly be called the
backbone of the language.

Brief indications of the etymology of each word are given, with
references in difficult cases to the Oxford English Dictionary
(_N.E.D._). Apart from their usefulness as a basis for exercises in
phonology and the analysis of vocabulary, these will serve to
differentiate words distinct in origin which coincide in some of their
forms or spellings. The Old English or Old French forms cited are those
that best illustrate the Middle English; in consequence the Old English
forms frequently differ from normal West-Saxon, and the Old French forms
are especially those of the French current in England (Anglo-French is
rarely specified). Old Norse words have usually been cited in the normal
spelling (e.g. of Zoëga's _Old Icelandic Dictionary_). Accordingly, long
vowels in Old Norse words are marked as in _bráþ-r_. In Old English
words stable long vowels are marked as in _brād_; uncertain quantity
or probable shortening in Old English times is marked as in
_adrǣ̆dd_; vowels that were lengthened in the Old English period
(e.g. before _ld_, _mb_, _nd_) are marked as in _cáld_, _clímban_,
_bíndan_.

For the convenience of beginners the glossary is liberally supplied with
cross references, and the prefixed Table summarizes the principal
variations of form or spelling. Particular attention should be given to
the following points of arrangement: (i) _Ȝ_ has a separate
alphabetical place following _G_; cross-references to _gh_ are not
given: (ii) _Þ_ has a separate alphabetical place following _T_;
variation between _þ_ and _th_ is disregarded, and initial _Th_ is
entered under _Þ_: (iii) _U_, _V_ are alternative forms of the same
letter; variation between them is disregarded, and initial _U_ is
entered under _V_: (iv) _Y_ initially has its usual place; but medial or
final _Y_ will be found in the alphabetical position of _I_.

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
