It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep.

Frühneuhochdeutsches Wörterbuch [Early New High German Dictionary]
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 usage.
