Anglo-Saxon Dictionary (Bosworth-Toller)

Bosworth, Joseph, T. Northcote Toller, and Alistair Campbell. An Anglo-Saxon Dictionary Based on the Manuscript Collections of Joseph Bosworth with Supplement and Revised and Enlarged Addenda. Two vols. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1898-1972.

Until Toronto’s Old English Dictionary Online is more complete, Bosworth-Toller will remain the standard Old English dictionary. Fortunately, since Old English is a dead language, its dictionaries don’t become outdated quickly and this remains a very useful tool.

A free online version is here. The online version includes the original 1898 dictionary and the 1921 supplement. It does not include the 1972 supplement, which is still under copyright.
