Timofeeva, Olga (2011). Battlefield victory: Lexical transfer in Medieval Anglo-Latin. In: Kranich, Svenja; Becher, Viktor; Höder, Steffen; House, Juliane. Multilingual Discourse Production: Diachronic and Synchronic Perspectives. Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins, 109-132.

Abstract

This paper addresses several expressions from the Anglo-Latin chronicles of the Old English period connected with the military milieu (e.g. _dominor loco funeris_ or _accipio victoriam_) and their possible sources in Old English phraseology. The Anglo-Latin data is compared to the _Anglo-Saxon Chronicle_ where similar phrases are attested and to the use of military vocabulary in Latin sources outside England. The coinage of such expressions is analysed in terms of first-language lexical transfer.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
