What in the World is the Middle
It is not a dictionary of Eng-
land's bourgeoisie. But it is both
a dictionary of the period from
1066 to 1475 and a project of the
University that no one knows
Possibly the only students that
have ever heard of the Middle
English Dictionary are astronomy
students, since the MED depart-
ment offices are on the fifth
floor of Angell Hall, next to the
telescopes and the astronomy de-
Prof. Hans Kurath
Head of the Middle English
Dictionary project is Prof. Hans
Kurath of the English depart-
ment, who has been in charge of
the Middle English Department
In its four rooms is the largest
collection of Middle English ref-
erences in the world. About 1,-
500,000 references are contained
in 150 feet of books and manu-
scripts that line the walls.
The dictionary when- completed
will contain 8000 ages and 1,000,-
000 selected references. So far,
all the groundwork has been com-
pleted and the letters E, F and A
have been published. B will go to
press in March.
16 More Years
At the present rate of 400 pages
per year, it will take approxi-
mately 16 more years before the
project is finished. Prof. Kurath
predicts the MED will be the stan-
dard work in the field for the next
100 years. The dictionary has been
called "the most important work
in medieval English literature"
by an expert in the field, Prof.
Randolph Quirk of the Univer-
sity of Durham, England.
"One of the things that has
complicated the production of
this dictionary," Prof. Kurath ex-
plained, "is the variation in the
spelling of words used during this
Eie, ehe, ee, ei, eghe, ei, ie -
a total of twelve different varia-
tions in all - combined into the
word 'eye' as we know it today.
The dictionary will include, be-
sides common everyday words, ev-
ery field of knowledge the Middle
Ages had. Words for physics, the-
ology, the different aspects of
feudal organization, even the four
letter Anglo-Saxon words which
spice today's language will be in-

Many words were taken direct-
ly f'om the French or Latin
equivalents. To some English
words a Latin ending was added.
"Wharfagium," for example, was
the duty a man had to pay for
tying up at the London docks.
One of the definitions of 'exa-
lacion,' from which our present
day word exhalation comes, was
the breathing out of vapors from
hills and gardens. These vapors,
the people of this time thought,
formed the clouds.
History of the MED is not as
long as could be expected. The'
reason for this is the use of Latin
by the Catholic Church and
French by the rulers of England.
Thus English for much of this
period was primarily a spoken
The first serious attempt at a
dictionary of Middle English
words was made in 1878 with the
publication of A Middle English
Dictionary by Francis H. Strat-
mann. Work on present diction-
ary has been centered in Ann Ar-
bor since 1930, when it was trans-
ferred from Cornell University.

Forty Years With Union

Tonight at 7:00 and 9:00

Architecture Auditorium 50c
By JAMES BOW
"Even to this day I feel foolish;
going through the front door of
the Union," Miss Bertha Welker,
secretary to the Union general
Miss Welker has just completed
40 years with the Union. She saw
the present building "go up from
scratch," and many of the old
traditions "pass by the boards."
One tradition was the rule pro-
hibiting women from entering the
Union's front door. Another cus-
tom, Miss Welker reminisced, was
the freshman "pot" or cap which
had to be worn on campus but had
to be removed in the Union.
Miss Welker recalled the tradi-
tions "Swing-out, promenade," and
Cap Night. It was all very pretty,
"All that is gone, too," she added
slowly, "and perhaps the students
have lost their sentiment."
Famous names as well as tradi-
tions are a part of Miss Welker's
memories, and it was with great
enthusiasm that she recalledi such
personages as Madame Schumann-
Heinck Carlos P. Romulo, and
Nelson Eddy," who was at one time
just a bit singer in the May Festi-
She remembers John Phillip
Sousa asking her to mail a manu-
script and remarking, "If you'll
do this for me, I'll dance at your
"One of the big thrills," Miss
Welker added with a special en-
thusiasm, "is to see boys come
back-boys who had worked their
way through school, and had be-
