Anglophone readers, or rather translators, of Old French will therefore profit greatly from this dictionary, and although the compilers refer in particular to the problems facing undergraduates (ix), graduate students and scholars in a good many fields will surely welcome it as well.

This is the first Old French-English dictionary of its kind to provide a comprehensive reference tool for a broad range of English-speaking users including students, scholars, philologists and historians. This manageable, single-volume, dictionary is based on a large and varied number of texts up to ca. 1350, starting from the "classics" of medieval French literature and extending through all the genres: epic, romance, religious, moral, didactic and allegorical texts, lyric poetry, drama, humor and satire, as well as nonliterary historical, political and legal documents.
I bought this to replace a Larousse Dictionnaire d'ancien francais (from 1947 or so) because I needed something larger that would encompass more dialects of Old French. So far, I am pleased with the new dictionary on the whole; I can find most of the words I look up, and the definitions satisfy the text. Perhaps one of the largest issues I have with this dictionary is the cross-referencing. I cannot describe how annoying it is to look up a word only to have the dictionary tell you to see yet another word... and so on. If you are reading a text in a Picard dialect, for example, you will need to do this for many words beginning with "c," sometimes with two or three cross-references. I wish it would just give the definition and write something like "see also __" behind the word. While this would certainly make the already-bulky dictionary even more so, in my experience, I wouldn't mind since it would still save me time.

It's one of the advantages of certain online dictionaries (such as the Anglo-Norman) that you can type in words very quickly and they typically offer a list of potential matches. However, since this paper dictionary is still small enough to fit in my book bag (along with other books), it is worth having.
The editors (the rhyming trio of Hindley, Langley, and Levy), all from the University of Hull, have produced an outstanding Old French-English dictionary. Clearly the audience for such a reference work is limited, yet Cambridge UP has published both a hardback and a paperback edition of this most useful tool, allowing students and academics to purchase the cheaper version for their personal use. Libraries, no doubt, prefer the sturdier hardback. What makes the dictionary especially appealing is its inclusion of multiple cross-referenced entries for the same word under its variant spellings (a common phenomenon in Old French), with cues to go to the most standard form. Most entries are quite succinct, but often strings of synonyms are included and, when appropriate, other less common meanings are noted. Since the meaning of a noun may change depending on the verb it follows, these various permutations are included too. A superb tool in slightly over 600 pages!
This book is fantastic! Totally worth the money! It even allows you to look up inflected forms, instead of just assuming like the other OF dictionaries that you've got them all memorized. Also is quite thorough with providing alternate spellings of a given word.
I bought this book a little over a year ago when my interest in Old French texts became serious.
I've never regretted buying this book. It's been a lifesaver. I am glad that there is a dictionary available which does not assume my first language is French.
Do not waste your money on this book. The Oxford English Dictionary proved itself much more thorough and useful.
