  • A Dictionary of the First or Oldest Words in the English Language By Herbert Coleridge Excerpt 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 publishedExcerpt 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 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, Tr bner 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 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 Pg iv 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.
