The Anglo-Norman Dictionary in its first edition (AND1, 1977-1992) was the only dictionary which attempted to provide coverage of medieval French as used in Britain.

The revised edition draws extensively on concordanced and digitized texts, and it offers a well-developed coverage of locutions. It features, too, a substantially revised layout. The articles are broken down and made much more usable by including a summary of the main senses at the head of each article, numbered in a way that takes a reader directly to the relevant portion of the entry body. As well as speeding up the location of a particular sense, this layout offers a clear overview of the principal semantic pattern of a particular word.

Winner of the 2011 Prix Honoré Chavée awarded by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres (Paris).
