Title: An Edition of the First Half of the Letter C of the Medulla Grammatice (Stonyhurst MS. A.1.10)
Author: MacCarren V., P.
Abstract: Il s’agit de l’édition de la première moitié de la lettre C du manuscrit de Stonyhurst de la Medulla Grammatice, le plus ancien (a. 1425) et le plus complet au sein de la tradition de la Medulla (19 manuscrits, tous d’origine anglaise). Elle prend la suite des éditions des lettres A et B (respectivement ALMA, 65, 2007, p. 45-116, et ALMA, 69, 2011, p. 53-87). L’édition comprend le texte, l’apparat critique et les notes, mais l’index figurera dans la deuxième partie de C. Une attention particulière est portée aux questions paléographiques, aux éléments étymologiques et au développement linguistique de plusieurs articles, ainsi qu’à divers problèmes d’orthographe, qui ont semblé une raison suffisante pour diviser la lettre. Ce manuscrit, soigneusement étudié, met en évidence les défis auxquels est confronté l’éditeur de glossaires médiévaux, autant que la joie de la découverte.This is an edition of the first half of the letter C of the Stonyhurst manuscript of the Medulla Grammatice, the earliest (ante 1425) and most complete manuscript within the Medullan tradition (nineteen manuscripts, all of English provenance). It follows closely upon the editions of A and B (ALMA, 65, 2007, p. 45-116, and ALMA, 69, 2011, p. 53-87, respectively). The edition includes text, apparatus criticus and notes, with introduction, but no index, as this will appear with the second half of C. Attention is paid to paleographical issues, matters of etymological significance and extensive linguistic development of several items, a number of which are repeated much later in the letter ; as well as a variety of orthographic problems, which seemed sufficient reason for the split- ting of the letter. This manuscript, carefully studied, reveals the challenges as well as the joy of discovery facing an editor of mediaeval glossaries.
