We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear colleagues

I am using the dictionary of Old English corpus for diachronic work on
modality.  It would be interesting to know when the texts/manuscripts
comprised by the corpus were actually written.  It seems that the corpus
does not provide any such information.

Does any of you know how I can find out more about the dates at which the
different texts were composed?

Any tips and suggestions are welcome!

Thank you.
