This is a short analysis of a dictionary entry of a single word, using the online Oxford English Dictionary, and the Middle English corpus ( the word is ( walk ) Please give a prose description of a word’s etymology as presented in the Oxford English Dictionary (use the online version available through the library). . You should specify: 1) The word, its spelling, its pronunciation (in IPA), its part of speech (verb, noun, adjective..) and its meaning. 2) The complete etymology of the word (going back to its earliest known or reconstructed form).

You need to explain what the book is and who wrote it (if this is known). 4) TWO examples of the word’s use in Middle English (using the Middle English corpus: Again, you need to explain what the books that contains these examples are ad who wrote them (if known). You may need to do some googling to figure this out. 5) Any significant change in meaning. Some of the abbreviations and symbols of the OED can be confusing. Luckily, there is a guide to these symbols here:
