The Old English dry-point glosses


Nievergelt, Andreas (2019). The Old English dry-point glosses. In: Lenker, Ursula; Kornexl, Lucia. Anglo-Saxon Micro-Texts. Berlin, Boston: De Gruyter, 161-173.

Abstract

The Old English dry-point glosses are a difficult but important material. The pertinent research has been neglected over the last years. This paper attempts to show the desiderata in this field: a large number of known dry-point entries in Anglo-Saxon manuscripts still need deciphering and editing. Moreover many manuscripts have not yet been examined systematically. Therefore it is necessary to reconsider the existing research on Old English scratched glosses. This paper gives an overview of the Old English dry-point tradition and of the current state of research and points out how to revive the study of Old English dry-point glossography.
