A Middle English Vocabulary

A project to mark up A Middle English Vocabulary by J. R. R. Tolkien and extract lexical information in a more machine-actionable form.

Source Material

  • 43737-0.txt — text file from Project Gutenberg
  • 43737-h.htm — HTML file from Project Gutenberg
  • 5KJeiE-middleenglishvoc00tolkuoft.pdf — PDF scan from archive.org

Corrections

  • corrected.txt — corrected file (mostly transcription errors)

but also, the following errors in printed version:

  • Wlaffyng is missing [
  • Ȝa, Ȝaa has OE for OE. in etymology
  • Ver(r)ay has OF. for OFr. in etymology
  • Noþeles has OE for OE. in etymology
  • Werkman, Workeman has OE for OE. in etymology
  • Goddesse has OE for OE. in etymology
  • Dedir has MnE. for Mn.E. in etymology
  • Breue has Med. L. for Med.L. in etymology
  • Danes has Med. L. for Med.L. in etymology

Code for Patterns

Currently running ./check_etymologies.py and building regular expressions in etym_patterns.py for etymological information; and running ./check_entries.py and building regular expressions in entry_patterns.py for overall pattern structure.

There are currently no dependencies for running the script above.

Source code is run through black, isort and flake8 which are all dev dependencies in Pipfile.

Planning the TEI Markup

See Notes on Structure. If you have ideas about the TEI markup, create an issue for a particular entry, giving the markup in corrected.txt, the proposed TEI markup and we can discuss open questions there.
