The .ac.uk domain name extension carries a high-profile online. Higher education providers are very eager to attain and keep an .ac.uk domain once registered, as they are trusted and recognised internationally.
Unlike other second-level UK domains (like .co.uk, or .org.uk) the registrations and renewals of ac.uk domains must meet mandatory requirements (see: jisc.ac.uk . what-does-an-acuk-web-address-mean).
The names of villages and towns frequently refer to particular people(s), social and administrative activities, landscape, birds and animals, crops and vegetation, and most of them are well over a thousand years old. In other words, they can tell us something important about the history of those places, and how they were perceived, which would otherwise be unknown.
This is an up-to-date guide to the interpretation of the names of England’s cities, towns and villages.
A Thesaurus of Old English is conceptually arranged, and presents the vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon England within ordered categories. This allows the user to approach the materials of the Thesaurus by subject rather than through an alphabetic index as is the case for many thesauri. The provision of brief indications of meaning at all levels of this scheme allows word-senses to follow on from ideas explained, so that this thesaurus incorporates information about word meaning and could be described as an inside-out dictionary, with meanings first and then words.
The Thesaurus is edited by Jane Roberts and Christian Kay with Lynne Grundy. This online version enables users to pinpoint the range of meanings of a word throughout its history, their synonyms, and their relationship to words of more general or more specific meaning. In addition to providing hitherto unavailable information for linguists, historians of language, authors, students of English, and textual scholars, A Thesaurus of Old English is a rich resource for investigating social and cultural history, showing the development of concepts through the words that refer to them.
