Designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, An Introductory Grammar of Old English presents the orthography, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics of the language chapter by chapter in connection with a series of graduated readings. The grammar accompanies an anthology of further readings that includes sixteen texts in prose and verse, some well known, some less familiar, with extensive commentary and a full glossary. Other features include an index to grammatical topics covered and appendices on sound changes, dialects, and poetic diction and form. A related website offers detailed bibliographical guidance to the study of Old English language and literature.
