Description: 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 DOE complements the Middle English Dictionary (which covers the period C.E. 1100-1500) and the Oxford English Dictionary, the three together providing a full description of the vocabulary of English. The DOE is based on a computerized Corpus comprising at least one copy of each text surviving in Old English. More than one third of the Dictionary — ten of the 22 letters of the Old English alphabet — has been published, and more than 60% of the total entries have been written to date.
