Description

"Mercy Madame, what is this to mene?" The library of resources for study of Langland's words has grown prodigiously in recent years: Wittig's Concordance (2001), Kane's Glossary (2005), and Schmidt's “Indexical Glossary” (2008) have joined the MED and the seminal studies by Alford. Meanwhile, critical attention to such words as “loller”, “conscience”, “mede” and “truth” demonstrates the persistent value of word-study as an approach to reading *Piers Plowman*. This session's papers build on and extend these investigations. The session will be of interest to specialists on Piers Plowman and also to scholars with interests in language history, lexicography, textual studies, and poetics.
