The Linguistic Atlas of Early Middle English (LAEME) provides a conspectus of dialectal variation in written Middle English 1150–1325. LALME (A Linguistic Atlas of Late Mediaeval English) extends this temporally to the following period. In these atlases, the complexity of the medieval English dialect continuum is revealed in extraordinary breadth and detail.
