PREFACE In order to substantiate certain generalizations incident to the preparation of a forthcoming volume on Old English syntax, I have found it necessary to take somewhat detailed notes upon texts later than those immediately under survey. Encouraged by the suggestion of my friend and master, Professor Albert S. Cook, of Yale University, I am publishing a few of these for whatever value they may have for others working in this field. A few months ago an earlier study, mentioned on the following page, appeared in Herrig's Archiv. The present brochure, containing a larger group of phenomena, arranged in topical order, is likewise offered as a mere bit of rubble in the foundation-wall of English syntax, which a stronger and more skillful hand than mine may someday build. -H.
