A. It is not necessary to speak of the form of what are often called Anglo-Saxon letters, as all Teutonic, Celtic, and Latin manuscripts of the same age are written in letters of the same form. There is one exception: the Anglo-Saxons had, with great propriety, two different letters for the two distinct sounds of our th: the hard þ in thin and sooth, and the soft ð in thine and soothe, vide Þ, þ.

  • Bosworth, Joseph. “wefan.” An Anglo-Saxon Dictionary: Based on the Manuscript Collections of the Late Joseph Bosworth. Ed. Thomas Northcote Toller. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1898. 1182.

A Combined List of Abbreviations

For this list, we have combined the five lists of the original Dictionary and the Supplement, namely:

Explanation of the principal contractions, Contractions used in Grein’s lexicon poeticum, Additional and altered references and Additional contractions.

The Original Explanation of References:

In the following list a want of uniformity may be noticed in the case of some of the contractions used. This is due partly to modifications of Dr. Bosworth’s forms, which it seemed convenient to make; partly to different conditions in respect to texts cited, which have been brought about while the work was in progress; some texts, that existed in MS. only, have been printed; of others, that were already printed, new editions have appeared, which were more convenient to refer to than were the old. Cross references are given below in these cases, Double references are given to passages cited from the poetry, to English editions and to Grein’s Bibliothek der Angelsächsischen Poesie; in the later the contractions used are those to be found in Grein’s Lexicon, and they are given together at the end of this list.

Where a reference to any citation consists of more than one part (e. g.’ Bt. —; Fox —), the several parts are separated by a semi-colon: where after a citation several references are given, these are separated by a colon.

When consecutive citations are taken from the same work the full reference is given only with the first (e. g. Bt. is not repeated where consecutive citations are taken from Boethius; or if the reference be of one part, e.g. Nar.—, the Nar. is not repeated).

You may also refer to the original printed front- & back-matter.

Since 1898, Bosworth-Toller’s Anglo-Saxon Dictionary has been the primary lexical reference for study of the Anglo-Saxon language. The printed monograph was digitized under the direction of Sean Crist, with funding provided by Joel Dean grants, at Swarthmore College. Click HERE for more information.

This digital image version of Bosworth-Toller has been assembled using an adaptation of Ebind , a method for binding together digital page images using an SGML document type definition (DTD) developed at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1996, by Alvin Pollock and Daniel Pitti.
