Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 1392/3 is a fragment of a comparative vocabulary of Latin, Welsh, Cornish, and Armoric, from Ob to the end of the alphabet. This is much less full than the comparative vocabulary in the Archcaelogia, yet many words are given which are not there. [Various hands including Parry's. Not Edward Lhwyd?]The Cornish is generally quoted with Lh. added. Some of the Armoric words appear to have been written by a Frenchman. This is followed by a list of Latin words from Nadir to the end of the alphabet, with spaces left for the insertion of Welsh and Armoric words but many of these spaces have never been filled. 38 fols.
