A Thesaurus of Old English is conceptually arranged, and presents the vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon England within ordered categories. This allows the user to approach the materials of the Thesaurus by subject rather than through an alphabetic index as is the case for many thesauri. The provision of brief indications of meaning at all levels of this scheme allows word-senses to follow on from ideas explained, so that this thesaurus incorporates information about word meaning and could be described as an inside-out dictionary, with meanings first and then words. In addition to providing hitherto unavailable information for linguists, historians of language, authors, students of English, and textual scholars, A Thesaurus of Old English is a rich resource for investigating social and cultural history, showing the development of concepts through the words that refer to them. The Thesaurus can be consulted online at the University of Glasgow website.

Synopsis:

A Thesaurus of Old English The Thesaurus is drawn from a database of more than 50,000 entries, each recording a discrete word sense of Old English vocabulary. These materials are taken largely from the standard dictionaries of the language, with some supplementation from the available fascicles of the Toronto Dictionary of Old English and from the DOE's working materials. The thesaurus classification is based on that designed by Michael Samuels and Christian Kay for the Historical Thesaurus of English, for which the TOE was initially a pilot study. Because the Thesaurus of Old English, first published in the King's College London Medieval Series (1995) as a research tool offered to the academic community, is now entering a second impression, it can be described in the words of its reviewers:
