    Dictionary of Old English [DOE]


    Recipient: (Toronto, Canada) in affiliation with University of Toronto (Toronto, ON Canada)

    Goal: The preparation of entries for the "Dictionary of Old English," a historical dictionary based on the entire extant corpus of Old English texts written between A.D. 650 and 1150.

    Description: The aim of the Dictionary of Old English (DOE) is to define the vocabulary of records written in English between 600 and 1150 C.E., using the technology of the twenty-first century. Because of its Electronic Corpus, comprising at least one copy of every Old English text, the DOE is based on a comprehensive examination of the surviving evidence. The DOE complements the other major historical dictionaries of English: the Middle English Dictionary (1100-1500 C.E.), and the Oxford English Dictionary, (which catalogues English up to the present). In 2003 the DOE made a significant technological advance by publishing DOE: A to F on CD-ROM, the first electronic version of the first seven letters (out of 22). In Fall 2007, the project will release DOE: A to G online, the first Web version of the first eight letters. An innovative feature is the link to the OED, providing a mechanism for dictionary cross-searching.

    Diyala Virtual Archive


    Recipient: (Toronto, ON Canada) in affiliation with University of Chicago (Chicago, IL 60637 USA)

    Goal: The creation of a virtual archive of archaeological data on ancient Mesopotamia, focusing on sites in the Diyala Region of northeast Iraq (3200-1800 BCE), which incorporates a relational, expandable database to be mounted on an existing Web site at the Oriental Institute.

    Description: This application seeks funding for a full web-based publication of the Diyala Excavations, a fundamentally important archaeological project undertaken in Iraq undertaken by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago between 1930 and 1938. The results from these excavations helped to establish the backbone for much of Mesopotamia's early chronology and history. Since 1994 the Oriental Institute has been compiling a multi-relational database to publish these artifacts on-line. This database will go live in Fall 2006. The current proposal seeks funding for the creation of a "Virtual Archive," which will make all this documentation available on-line in scanned and indexed format. Scholars from around the world will have free and unrestricted access to this important corpus of archaeological material, allowing them to examine the field records first-hand and to question the excavators' conclusions and interpretations in light of their own research.
