Abstract:

Scholars began to collect quotations on which to base a dictionary of MedievalLatin in 1924. Publication of the fascicules of the Dictionary of MedievalLatin from British Sources started in 1975 and is expected to continue until2014.

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