The Linguistic Atlas of Late Mediaeval English (LALME) provides a conspectus of dialectal variation in written Middle English 1325–1450. LAEME (A Linguistic Atlas of Early Middle English) extends this temporally to the preceding period. In these atlases, the complexity of the medieval English dialect continuum is revealed in extraordinary breadth and detail. This Guide for Beginners outlines the contents of the online version of LALME and describes the key functions of this web resource.
