Transcription plans…

18 10 2010

An exciting development in the Manchester Middle English Manuscripts project…  Two volunteers, Mary Begley & Jasmine Sparrow, will be working on a transcription of English MS 7 (Forme of Cury). Mary & Jasmine have both recently completed BAs in English Language at the University of Manchester. Upon completion, the transcriptions will be available in the Luna record for English MS 7.





Thank you!

The MMEMS project would like to say a big thank you to Mary Begley, a postgraduate student in the School of Languages, Linguistics & Cultures, who has been volunteering with us for a few years.  Her contribution to the project has been invaluable.  As part of her recently completed BA in English Language, Mary’s dissertation was a partial transcription of, and a morpho-syntactic/lexico-semantic description of MS English 404 (Medical Recipes). She is currently working on English MS 82, a Wycliffe Old Testament, which is the last remaining  manuscript, out of the original 41, to be catalogued.
