Abstract:

Scholars began to collect quotations on which to base a dictionary of Medieval
Latin in 1924. Publication of the fascicules of the Dictionary of Medieval
Latin from British Sources started in 1975 and is expected to continue until
2014.

The dictionary records the continuing usage of classical and late Latin in the
British Isles and by Britons abroad from Gildas (AD 540) to Camden (1600). It
illustrates a continuous tradition of thought and composition in language
based upon and derived from the highest literary register of Classical and
Late Latin, but also incorporating lexical and syntactic elements from the
vernacular languages spoken and written in Britain and from Greek, Celtic,
Germanic, Romance, and Semitic. Many new formations from these and other
languages are revealed - some of the borrowings recorded in Latin centuries
before their appearance in written vernacular sources.
