The Dictionary of Old English Web Corpus is an online database consisting of at least one copy of every surviving Old English text. In some cases, more than one copy is included, if it is significant because of dialect or date. As such, the DOE Web Corpus represents over three million words of Old English and fewer than a million words of Latin, or almost five times the collected works of Shakespeare. Compiled as part of the Dictionary of Old English project at the University of Toronto, the texts in the Corpus are XML-encoded and are fully conformant with the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines (TEI-P5 2007). The interface for the Dictionary of Old English Web Corpus was developed by the Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan.
The DOE Web Corpus is available by institutional site license through the Dictionary of Old English Project. Authentication is verified by the subscribing campus network's authorized Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. No passwords are needed.
The DOE Web Corpus is also available to individual subscribers through the Dictionary of Old English Project. Authentication is verified by the subscriber's email address and a password of the subscriber's choice.
