Qs: Dates of Old English Corpus

Editor for this issue: Steven Moran <stevelinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Dates of Old English Corpus

Subject: Dates of Old English Corpus


Dear colleagues
 
 I am using the dictionary of Old English corpus for diachronic work on
 modality.  It would be interesting to know when the texts/manuscripts
 comprised by the corpus were actually written.  It seems that the corpus
 does not provide any such information.
 
 Does any of you know how I can find out more about the dates at which the
 different texts were composed?  
 
 Any tips and suggestions are welcome!
 
 Thank you.
 
 Best regards
