Colleague Nuria Yáñez-Bouza wrote in to tell us that she happened across the following in “…Robert Cawdrey’s “Table Alphabetical”, the first monolingual dictionary of English written in English, 1604.” She attached this page, which shows the entry for “manchet” which inspired David Denison‘s naming of this newsblog.  Cool!
