English Dictionaries, 800-1700: The Topical Tradition

By Werner Hüllen | Go to book overview

Note on the text

Quotations reproduce the original texts as accurately as possible. All long 'S's have been changed into short ones. Where book titles or parts of texts were originally capitalized, the capitalization has only been retained in the first letter of each word. Varying sizes of fonts, decorative letters, ornaments, quotations, etc. on title pages have been ignored. Ends of lines have not been indicated.

All quotations of foreign-language text have been italicized. In this respect, Old English, Middle English, and Early Modern English have been treated as 'foreign'. This is why italics in original, mainly Early Modern English, texts could not be retained. There are only a few exceptions to this rule, and they are specifically pointed out.

Round brackets () are part of the quoted text. Square brackets indicate that I ( W. H.) have changed the original either by explaining otherwise unintelligible references, or by expanding abbreviations. Exclamation marks in square brackets [!] have only been used if otherwise an error in reproduction, rather than in the original, could have been assumed. Errors and irregularities in the originals are not marked.

Whenever a letter in the original was illegible, a question mark has been inserted instead, even if a sensible solution for the reading problem was easily to be found. Bold face has sometimes been added to allow the reader a better overview of the quoted text. It is in no case part of the original.

The appendix contains a number of supplementary tables. Readers are not required to study them in order to understand the book, although they may find them helpful.
