A 40-year project in the making, the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is the first historical thesaurus to include almost the entire vocabulary of English, from Old English to the present day. Conceived and compiled by the Department of English Language of the University of Glasgow, the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is a groundbreaking analysis of the historical inventory of English, allowing users to find words connected in meaning throughout the history of the language.
The Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is a unique resource for word-lovers of all types--linguists and language specialists, historians, literary commentators, among others--as well as a fascinating resource for everyone with an interest in the English language and its historical development. It is a perfect complement to the OED itself, allowing the words in the OED to be cross-referenced and viewed in wholly new ways.

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS EXCEPTIONALLY HEAVY AND OUTSIZED. I HAVE TO CHARGE POSTAGE ON THIS BOOK. Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary with additional material from A Thesaurus of Old English. The first reference work of its kind in any language. ‘The ultimate volume for the word fetishist’ NEW YORKER BOOK BENCH ‘I can hardly imagine any reference book more valuable here is the information we had to spend hours hunting down through the thickets of the OED, shot, stuffed and mounted for us.’ PHILIP PULLMAN, author of His Dark Materials ‘No words of mine can express the magnificence of this monument to our huge and often beautiful language’ ELSPETH BARKER, Literary Review. The product of decades of research and scholarship, the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is a unique new resource charting the full semantic development of English. It is the first historical thesaurus ever produced for any language, containing almost every major word in English from Old English to modern. This unrivalled analysis of English provides a fascinating picture of the development of the language and will be of interest to philologists, writers and lovers of words. For the very first time, information that was previously locked away in the alphabetical structure of the Oxford English Dictionary is now made easily accessible. Scholars or writers, wishing to reconstruct the vocabulary of a certain period, previously needed to look up synonyms of individual words in a thesaurus and then trace their history separately in the OED. The Historical Thesaurus collects subjects together (e.g. ‘existence in time and space’) and then within each individual entry (e.g. ‘create/make/bring about’) organises synonyms in chronological order, giving dates of usage. ‘Every line generates fresh insights. It is at once awe-inspiring, humbling, motivating, moving. It actually made me gasp with amazement – and I mean out loud – several times, and I can’t recall lexicology doing that to me before! It’s amazing how these entries make you feel so much closer to the history of the language than was previously possible. The OED gave us individual trees, but never a sight of the whole forest or helpful pathways through it. The thesaurus does precisely that. It heralds a new era in the historical study of English’ DAVID CRYSTAL This huge project was conceived by the Department of English Language of the University of Glasgow. Dedicated teams spent over forty years in its making. The result is the largest thesaurus resource in the world, covering more than 920,000 words and meanings, arranged in thousands of categories under three broad sections: the world, the mind and society. You will find an abundance of etymological delights: to talk idly has ‘waeflian’ as its Old English form (perhaps leading to today’s ‘waffle’), ‘chatter’ was around in the 13th century, while to ‘tinkle’ or ‘whiffle’ enjoyed a rather more short-lived usage in the 17th and 18th centuries. This remarkable new work has won widespread praise from journalists and authors around the English speaking world. ‘I am one of those who is intrigued by the way in which language evolves. To see the development of the English language set out in this way will bring endless pleasure to any lover of words. This work is, quite simply, fascinating’ ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH ‘I’ve been waiting nearly all my life for a book like this – as it turns out, literally! I am thrilled that the Historical Thesaurus is now a reality. The only problem is that I may dive in and never come out again. This is a word lover’s dream’ BARBARA KINGSOLVER ‘Here is a work in which you can lose yourself and find your language. The Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is so thorough and readable that it resembles other thesauri in name only. Finally the OED has a worthy counterpart’ AMMON SHEA, author of Reading the OED. Two volumes. Sewn cloth binding. Presented in a buckram slipcase. MASSIVELY HEAVY.
