Bosworth Toller online

A fellow lover of Old Timey English sent me a link to a downloadable version of Bosworth & Toller's Anglo Saxon Dictionary.

A version for Mac users is also available.

It's a very simple interface on the Mac application.

This streamlining has apparently gobbled up some of the features for the Mac. I'm having trouble working with special characters. I can cut/copy and paste them in but there's no dropdown menu as the PC version apparently has. Nor can I get HTML to work in the search (e.g. æ = æ) which supposedly works with PC full text searches.

But it's fun to play with the searches anyhow.

Also available for download are images of the complete print dictionary. You'll need 653 MB for the 2069 jpg files.
