Summary This Concordance is a complete wordlist of the Blickling homiletic texts, which date from the late 10th century making them one of the earliest extant examples of prose writings in English. Each word is cited in standard dictionary form, expanded grammatically and referenced by line and page number to R.J. Kelly's edition and translation of The Blickling Homilies (Continuum, 2003). Frequently occurring words, such as prepositions and conjunctions, are cited in an Appendix, which also includes an outline of the principal linguistic structures of Old English. Important features of this Concordance include quick and straightforward cross referencing to the homiletic texts; identifying words from earlier Anglo-Saxon dialects; and the correction of scribal errors. The Concordance will be of particular interest to linguistics, cultural historians and researchers in various interdisciplinary fields
