This study examines the range of culinary verbs found in the English culinary recipes of the 14th and 15th centuries. Altogether over 1500 recipes have been collected and over 100 verbs were selected for the research. They have been divided into three major semantic groups, i.e. verbs of cooking, cutting, and preparing. The analysis comprises such aspects as the origin of the verbs, rivalry of synonyms, context of usage and other criteria.
Magdalena Bator studied at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland). Currently she is a lecturer at the School of English at the University of Social Sciences in Warsaw (Poland). Her research interests focus on various aspects of English historical linguistics, in particular historical lexicology.
