Lexicon Poeticum

The New Lexicon Poeticum (lexiconpoeticum.org) is a project to produce a new lexicographic resource covering Old Norse poetry (initially the category known as skaldic poetry). It is based on the corpus produced by the Skaldic Project (supported project no. 60 of the Union Académique Internationale, with funding provided by UK Arts & Humanities Research Council, Australian Research Council, Joint Committee of the Nordic Research Councils for Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and other bodies). SkP is nearing completion, with over 80% of the corpus entered into its digital resource.
