How to Cite

Citing Thesaurus of Old English Data

Each category page contains a link to find a custom citation for that category in APA, MLA and Chicago styles. If your style guide prefers a single bibliography entry for this resource, we recommend:

A Thesaurus of Old English. 2015. Glasgow: University of Glasgow. http://oldenglishthesaurus.arts.gla.ac.uk/

If your style guide insists on author names, then we suggest:

Roberts, Jane and Christian Kay with Lynne Grundy. 2015. A Thesaurus of Old English. Glasgow: University of Glasgow. http://oldenglishthesaurus.arts.gla.ac.uk/

You will normally also need to give the date on which you accessed the site, as frequent updates of the material here have been undertaken since 2005.

Finally, please note that each search result and category page has a persistent URL which can be used to refer to a precise point in the database.

Citing the About Pages

Where no author is specified, the About and other text pages on this site were written by Christian Kay and Jane Roberts. You can therefore cite the information on these pages as in the following example:

Roberts, Jane and Christian Kay. 2015. Classification. In About A Thesaurus of Old English. Glasgow: University of Glasgow. http://oldenglishthesaurus.arts.gla.ac.uk/classification
