Subject: Re: Middle English Sources

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in any sources (preferably accessible) from the Southwest

of England from the Middle English Period. I'm not sure if this is the

place for such a request, but I will be using the information in a study of

Newfoundland dialects. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it

if you'd drop me a line. (tporter[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] -- if you'd like to

keep it off the discussion group)



ps also, if there's a more appropriate group that I should ask, lemme know.

THe Penn-Helsinki Corpus of Middle English might be a place to start. It

is available through anonymous ftp at or though

a browser at

But you need to direct an access request first to Anthony Kroch at
