INDEX TO NOTES, AND GLOSSARY

The page number is given first; a superior numeral or character indicates the note. When it
Is necessary to distinguish columns, the letters a and b are used. Occasionally the references are
to numbered lines on a page.

Not all notes are indexed. Notes upon authors anri titles may be found through the indexes to
authors and titles. In general this index has been restricted to such notes as are likely to be
wanted for purposes of cross-reference and comparison (see Introduction); but a few others, that
seemed of especial intrinsic importance, have been added.

The glossary is inserted here in one alphabetical order with the index, but the words begin
with small letters. It has likewise been restricted to the items of most importance. Since practically
every strange or archaic usage is explained as it occurs, it seemed useless to repeat them all here,
especially those that occur only once, or have only a contextual significance. Thus, the vocabulary
of Chaucer has been largely omitted from the glossary, and so also have the Scotticisms. But
all such archaisms as are to be found widely scattered through our literature are given, with
nearly always one or more references to illustrate their use.
