Excerpt from Twelve Facsimiles of Old English Manuscripts: With Transcriptions and an Introduction
In most cases, the usual editions have their own glossaries. Such is the case with Earle's edition of the Chronicle, the edition of the Ormulum by White (1852) and by Holt and m... ost of the other works referred to in the heading to each of the transcriptions. The extracts numbered V, VI, and VII, have been specially chosen as being all of them extant in Morris's Specimens of English, Part I. I shall therefore assume that the sounds of the symbols and the meanings of the words are understood or can be made out, and I confine the following remarks solely to the consideration of the forms of the letters and the modes of writing adopted by the scribes.
