Word Wizards' Rare Feat » "For a dozen years, Elizabeth Girsch visited a world last seen 600 years ago. [...] The result, the Middle English Dictionary, was finished this summer. All told, the project took Girsch and 124 colleagues 71 years. [...] The dictionary covers 15,000 pages and includes more than 55,000 entries. The numerous meanings and usages are illustrated with 900,000 quotations ranging from the time of William the Conqueror to the advent of printing." Very cool. Where can I buy it?
