Meurier's Vocabvlaire Franrois-jlameng (1557, 1562 and 1566), his DictionaireFlamen-franrois (1563 and 1567), the Dictionarivm Tetraglotton (1562), Kiliaen's Etymologicum teutonicae linguae (1574, 1588 and 1599) including his own copy (of 1599) with his marginal notes (a modern edition of which is being prepared by F. Claes at Leuven). Use is, of course, also made of the bilingual dictionaries since the seventeenth century and of nineteenth and twentieth-century concise dictionaries. The laborious job of copying out entries in these dictionaries by hand is now replaced by cutting excerpts from xerox copies of the pages and pasting these up for the editors' final selection.

This has meant the replacement of slips used several times, in various coloured inks, crowded with additions in different hands, extending from A to Q and much ofR, S and T. These must have sorely tried the patience and skill of the compositors and drove the younger assistants to despair when they found that some of the scrawled jottings were quite undecipherable. Supplement Since 1942 the collection of supplementary material has been steadily progressing alongside the main compilation. The original intention, to publish a shorter WNTwhich would incorporate some of this material has been abandoned and it is not now certain how this can best be publishedperhaps in supplementary volumes, as a completely new" WNT" or in the form of separate chronological dictionaries.

The d ought probably to be retained in reeds (already) which is related to the stem of the verb reden (to prepare) and the adjective gereed (ready), since this d belongs to a "deeper structure". Yet the Dutchman who uses this word without any knowledge of this relationship, needs no more than the surface structure of the word which consists of four elements: r + ee + t + s. For him the d is an unnecessary burden on his memory. The spelling of Dutch verbal forms, at least in part, furnishes significant examples of the expression of the deeper structure.
