Lexicons of Early Modern English now open access!

Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) is the robust research tool valued greatly by lexical historians and researchers around the world.

LEME has been setting the standard for modern linguistic research on the English language since 1990 by providing researchers unprecedented access to early books and manuscripts documenting the growth and development of the English language. LEME is ever expanding and currently includes more than 808, 963 word-entries from 213 monolingual, bilingual, and polyglot dictionaries, lexical encyclopedias, hard-word glossaries, spelling lists, and lexically-valuable treatises surviving in print or manuscript from the Tudor, Stuart, Caroline, Commonwealth, and Restoration periods.

To this date, LEME has been available in two versions – an open access version that allows for simple searches on the multilingual lexical database and a subscription based version, that provides a robust and full-featured scholarly resource for advanced research into the entire lexical content of Early Modern English.

In an effort to make this valuable research tool available to all researchers, everywhere, the LEME Project team, University of Toronto Press and the University of Toronto Libraries are pleased to announce that as of January 30, 2017, Lexicons of Early Modern English, and all of its functionality, will be full open access.
