This is not currently part of the peer-reviewed material of the project. Do not cite as a research publication.

Website development: this month the main website was developed using the information already added to the database.

Users can browse and search the lemmas in the database. The lemma view gives a full list of skaldic citations, including compounds, as well as a list of kennings in which the lemma occurs. In addition, all manuscripts which are recorded as having the lemma are listed. (This was a bit tricky because it has to take into account the manuscripts linked to a stanza, lacunas in each, the implicit witnesses for main readings in the database structure, variant readings which may or may not include the word in question.)

A new domain was registered,, which redirects to one of the main database sites.

Online dictionaries which have been imported have now a more streamlined interface and are linked to the main headword list.
