Guide to Scripts Used in English Writings Up to 1500
British Library, 2005 - 294 pagina's
Despite a resurgence of interest in the history of the English language, this work is the only book available to introduce readers to the scripts used in Old and Middle English writing. The best way to understand changes in scripts across time is through visual examples, and this highly illustrated book reveals precisely how Middle English is different from Old English and how these gradual changes have developed. Images from important literary texts such as Caedmon’s “Hymn” and the Lindisfarne Gospels demonstrate the chronological progression of the writing.

use also in 'beppleaemess', 1. 34a, perhaps to help signal a new syllable, and its
expansion into 'am(jEn)' because that is the spelling used by Orm elsewhere.
