Lexicons of Early Modern English now open access!


Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) is the robust research tool valued
greatly by lexical historians and researchers around the world. 


LEME has been setting the standard for modern linguistic research on the
English language since 1990 by providing researchers unprecedented access to
early books and manuscripts documenting the growth and development of the
English language. LEME is ever expanding and currently includes more than
808, 963 word-entries from 213 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.


To this date, LEME has been available in two versions - an open access
version that allows for simple searches on the multilingual lexical database
and a subscription based version, that provides a robust and full-featured
scholarly resource for advanced research into the entire lexical content of
Early Modern English.


In an effort to make this valuable research tool available to all
researchers, everywhere, the LEME Project team, University of Toronto Press
and the University of Toronto Libraries are pleased to announce that as of
January 30, 2017, Lexicons of Early Modern English, and all of its
functionality, will be full open access.
