A concise Modern English to Old English dictionary and thesurus
Wordcraft provides Old English equivalents
to the commoner modern words in both a dictionary and thesaurus.
Previously the lack of an accessible guide to vocabulary deterred
many would-be students of Old English.
Wordcraft combines the core words relating to everyday life with
a selection of terms connected with society, culture, technology,
religion, perception, emotion and expression to encompass all
aspects of Anglo-Saxon experience.
The Thesaurus presents vocabulary relevant to a wide range of
individual topics in alphabetical lists, thus making it easy to
find specific areas of interest. Each thematic listing is cross-reference
from the Dictionary. The two sections will be of invaluable assistance
to students of the language, as well as those with either a general
or a specific interest in the Anglo-Saxon period.
