TitleCawdrey’s A Table Alphabeticall: a quantitative approach
AbstractThis paper investigates the headwords in Cawdrey's A Table Alphabetical!, an English monolingual dictionary first published in 1604, and covering 'hard words'. It explores ways of estimating how different the headword selection is from that of current dictionaries, and considers what 'hard words' may actually be in current terms.
