The corpus Early Modern English Medical Texts (EMEMT) is the second
component of the Corpus of Early English Medical Writing (CEEM), a
three-part series of historical corpora of medical writing from 1375-1800.
EMEMT contains a two-million word representative sample of the entire field
of English medical writings that appeared in print between 1500 and 1700,
and provides continuity to Middle English Medical Texts (MEMT),
published on CD-ROM by John Benjamins in 2005.
The EMEMT corpus includes c. 230 texts, ranging from theoretical treatises
rooted in academic traditions of medicine to popularized and utilitarian texts
verging on household literature. The texts are grouped into six text
categories that facilitate systematic research into the history of medical
writing in its disciplinary context: general treatises and textbooks;
treatises on specific topics; recipe collections and materia medica;
regimen and health guides; surgical treatises; and samples of the first
scientific journal, the Philosophical Transactions.
EMEMT is released on CD-Rom with EMEMT Presenter, purpose-designed
software by Raymond Hickey.
The corpus is published with a book,
Early Modern English Medical Texts: Corpus Description and Studies,
edited by Irma Taavitsainen & Päivi Pahta.
Written In: English (eng )
