This is the first Old French-English dictionary of its kind to provide a comprehensive reference tool for a broad range of English-speaking users including students, scholars, philologists and historians. This manageable, single-volume, dictionary is based on a large and varied number of texts up to ca. 1350, starting from the "classics" of medieval French literature and extending through all the genres: epic, romance, religious, moral, didactic and allegorical texts, lyric poetry, drama, humor and satire, as well as nonliterary historical, political and legal documents.
