Prepared by Michael Steer

Edward Lye (born at Totnes 1694 - died 1767) was a scholar of Old English and Germanic philology. His Dictionarium Saxonico-et Gothico-Latinum, published posthumously in 1772, was a milestone in the development of Old English lexicography, surpassed only by, and substantially contributing to Joseph Bosworth's Dictionary of the Anglo-Saxon language of 1838.
