I am a PhD Candidate at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, where I am presently writing my dissertation on Netherlandish Painters living in London from 1550-1580.
As part of my research I am working on an unpublished manuscript of nearly 8,000 words written in Middle Dutch, which is a language unfamiliar to me. I am learning, but I would be grateful for the assistance of those with more expertise on the following list of words, which I have been unable to translate in spite of my best efforts. I have done all of the usual searches, including the GTB Dictionary, a 19th century Old Dutch/English dictionary, and extensive online research. In some cases I believe I have a correct translation, but as I am not entirely certain I have placed the proposed English equivalent in brackets.
I would be hugely grateful for the advice/expertise of those more familiar with this language who may be able to help me with this list. I realize that I am asking a great deal, but any help would be appreciated.
Thank you so much.
