This tool performs a "reverse lookup" of Present-Day English (PDE) verbs in the Middle English Dictionary (MED). A list of PDE verbs should be specified in a file, either as a simple text file with one verb per line, or in a HTML file produced by the Verb classes tool. Each verb is then looked up in the definitions of verbs in the MED, and the matches listed on the results page. A Zip archive containing the results as a HTML file with links to the MED entries and a CSV table for further analysis in a spreadsheet application is also made available for download.
The uploaded file can be a plain text file with one verb per line, or an output file from a Verb classes search.
A lookup can take up to several minutes if you submit a large verb list. Please be patient.
