Folia LingfMstica Htstorica XIV/l-2pp. 29-82 © Societas Linguistica Europaea PETER KITSON The linguistic content of Anglo-Saxon Charter boundaries has the great advantage äs a field of research that to an extent unusual in name studies it is a statistically controllable corpus. That is especially true of the substantive elements of local names, where there is precisely one per name and where cross-checking numbers of names of different types against numbers of boundary features guarantees (within the ümits of the definitions) total accuracy. An exposition of this was presented at the Council for Name Studies Conference at Aberdeen in 1984, the material of which will be published äs chapter VI of Kitson, forthcoming (c). The corpus is nearly enough uniform across space and time for those aspects of it which are not uniform to stand out conspicuously and furnish the wherewithal to study Old English dialects with an order of magnitude more accuracy than hitherto (Kitson 1990, 1992, and forthcoming (a, b)). Qualifying elements do not lend themselves so well to tidy cross-checking, in that not all boundary features are referred to by a name containing a qualifier, and some which are have more than one. It is thus
