Lexicons of Early Modern English

Description: 

"Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) is a historical database of monolingual, bilingual, and polyglot dictionaries, lexical encyclopedias, hard-word glossaries, spelling lists, and lexically-valuable treatises surviving in print or manuscript from the Tudor, Stuart, Caroline, Commonwealth, and Restoration periods". The LEME project is partially available through a free, public version and is fully available through a private license. The public version allows access to minimal browsing features, all of which are expanded in the licensed edition. Each lexicon entry is accompanied by a detailed entry that describes the headword and explanation of the lexicon as well as the genre and summary of the document in which it appears.
