The "Early New High German Dictionary" is an alphabetically-ordered sense
dictionary of the varieties of High German from the 14th to 17th century.

Its entries are arranged as follows: Each headword is followed by concise
information on the inflectional morphology and (in the case of
etymologically isolated words or words that are difficult to classify)
brief references to the etymology. This is followed by the core of each
entry, namely, the explanation of the various senses of a word, which have
been numbered. References to time, region and text type provide important
information about the dimensions in which each sense of a word was used.
The cumulative naming of semantically-related words and typical syntagmatic
contexts provide insight into the structural, lexical correlations. A
detailed block of examples per sense demonstrates the word in its original
