For those wishing to improve their Old English, this dictionary covers every word from "abboddom" (jurisdiction of an abbott) to "ydworigende" (wandering on the waves). Even a casual reader will be delighted to learn such terms as "forliggang" (adultery, fornication), "grundwiergen" (water-wolf, accursed monster of the deep), and "mordor" (murder).
