Acknowledgements

I wish to acknowledge both the intellectual debts and those less obvious but equally important debts incurred over the course of many years' work on this project. The University of Wollongong and its English Department has provided support in many forms, including research grants and other resources, over most of the period during which I was at work. Its Library and staff have patiently answered my every enquiry. Thanks are also due to my supervisors at Sydney University, Professor Robert Eagleson and Professor Alex Jones, for their help and sound advice. The State Library of New South Wales has provided me with access to the basic materials for this work. The Oxford Dictionaries and its Director, Mrs L. S. Burnett, and its staff, especially Miss Elizabeth Knowles, who has given me her valuable time and expertise freely in the midst of her labours on the Shorter Oxford Dictionary, must especially be thanked, as well as its archivist, Mrs Jenny McMorris. Mr John Simpson of the OED has also generously provided information and ready assistance. I am grateful to the Bodleian Library, especially the staff of Duke Humphrey's Library; the Wellcome Institute Libraries, both in London and Oxford; the late Professor Jürgen Schäfer; the University of Michigan Library at Ann Arbor for allowing me to consult the OED old slips; Professor Richard W. Bailey of the University of Michigan for his encouragement, advice, and support over a number of years; the Public Library of Melbourne; the Shakespeare Institute, then in Birmingham, and its Librarian, Susan Brock; Dr Vivian Salmon; the University of Helsinki English Department and the Helsinki University Library; Dr Juhani Norri; Brigitta Flick, Sally Vickers, and many others who have wittingly or unwittingly been of assistance, or have patiently listened to my tedious explanations. Whatever errors and misunderstandings remain are mine alone.

There are many other debts, some of which will have been overlooked with the passing of time, but which have none the less been
