A Chronology of the Medieval Irish Lexicon.

From an eDIL Facebook post:

The time has finally come! This week the new eDIL project ‘A Chronology of the Medieval Irish Lexicon’ got underway. The aim over the next few years is to establish a chronology for the vocabulary of Irish up to c. 1650 and to produce a new suite of tools for the website, including a visualisation tool to enable users to see at a glance the chronological span of words and meanings. Alongside the academic work, there will be Word of Week, Date of the Day, events, workshops and more.

This project is based at Queen’s University, Belfast, and at the University of Cambridge, led by Prof. Greg Toner and Prof. Máire Ní Mhaonaigh, and generously funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

This is fantastic news — thanks, Trevor! (We have met Ní Mhaonaigh before; she pronounces her name, which is the feminine form of Ó Maonaigh and can be anglicized as Meany or Mooney, something like /niˈwɛwnɪk/.)
