eLALME is a revised on-line edition of A Linguistic Atlas of Mediaeval English (Atlas), by Angus McIntosh, M.L. Samuels and Michael Benskin, published in 1986 by Aberdeen University Press.

For a more detailed orientation, and an introduction both to the materials used in the making of the Atlas and to the methodology adopted for its linguistic analysis, the user is referred to the General Introduction in volume 1 of the printed edition and to the separate introductions in the other three volumes. For copies of these please see the Original Atlas Introductions. These are also available from the eLALME main page. You can use your browser’s ‘Print’ function to make PDF versions.
