English Dictionaries 800 1700 Book Description:

This fascinating study explores the so-called topical, i.e. non-alphabetical, word-lists which appeared between the beginnings of written culture and 1700. A form of early dictionary, these lists followed the influential paradigms of theology, philosophy, and natural history of the time, providing us with evidence on cultural history and linguistic development. Professor H�llen draws on many examples to provide an insight into this lexicographical tradition.
