The following outline of Anglo-Saxon Grammar is restricted to the West-SaxonDialect, that form of the language which in the reign of Alfred the Great (871-901) became dominant for literary purposes and maintained that supremacy tothe close of the Anglo-Saxon period. The changes which took place within theWest-Saxon Dialect, though slight in respect of phonology and inflection, makeit necessary to distinguish Early West-Saxon, the language of Alfred's time,from Late West-Saxon, the language of the following two and a half centuries,with Ælfric (died between 1020 and 1025 as the central literary figure.

In this outline EWS is regarded as the norm to which LWS is subordinated.Contents: Grammar (Phonology, inflection (declension, conjugation). (re-edition;originally published London, 1906).
