Dictionary of Old English

You can now access Old English words through two new resources.

The Dictionary of Old English (DOE) defines the vocabulary of the first six centuries (C.E. 600-1150) of the English language, using twenty-first century technology.  The dictionary covers the first eight letters of the Old English alphabet.

The Dictionary of Old English Corpus contains at least one copy of each text surviving in Old English. The body of surviving Old English texts encompasses a rich diversity of records written on parchment, carved in stone and inscribed in jewelry. These texts fall into several categories: prose, poetry, glosses to Latin texts and inscriptions.
