Altgaskognisches Wörterbuch


Publication of dictionaries complementary to the medieval language of Southern France. In addition to the “Dictionnaire onomasiologique de l’ancien gascon” (DAG), a dictionary of the Gascon-linguistic area arranged according to subject groups, there is the “Dictionnaire onomasiologique de l’ancien occitan” (DAO), which covers the entire Old Occitan linguistic area, supplemented by a documentary dictionary (DAOSuppl). The recorded vocabulary of troubadour lyricism and documentary language dates from the first beginnings in the 11th century to, essentially, the 16th century. These first conceptually structured dictionaries for the Old Occitan and Old Gascon present a complete picture of the linguistic situation in the Middle Latin and regional French regions of southern France. An alphabetical index volume provides convenient access.
