Electronic Lexicography of Old EnglishISSN 2605-1540
Electronic Lexicography of Old English (ELOE) is a publication of the Nerthus Project that is concerned with all the aspects of the design, making and use of Old English dictionaries compiled or distributed electronically. The focus of ELOE is on the publication of studies in specific Old English words or sets of related words. ELOE recognises the role of online dictionaries, databases and knowledge bases and insists on the relevance of these resources in the wider contexts of Digital Humanities and the third generation Internet. From Number 2 onwards, WPEELEX is a peer-reviewed journal. It is a free-access online publication delivered in PDF format and published yearly.
