The purpose of CoNE is to explain a specific data set: the forms attested in the corpus of early Middle English texts collected for a Linguistic Atlas of Early Middle English (LAEME). This corpus is the largest available collection of texts written or copied in English during the period 1150-1325. The two fundamental parts of CoNE are the set of narrative etymologies (the Corpus of Narrative Etymologies itself) and the set of linguistic changes (the Corpus of Changes, the CC).
