9789027211774: Early Modern English Medical Texts: Corpus description and studies

The corpus Early Modern English Medical Texts (EMEMT) is the second component of the Corpus of Early English Medical Writing (CEEM), a three-part series of historical corpora of medical writing from 1375-1800. EMEMT contains a two-million word representative sample of the entire field of English medical writings that appeared in print between 1500 and 1700, and provides continuity to Middle English Medical Texts (MEMT), published on CD-ROM by John Benjamins in 2005.
The EMEMT corpus includes c. 230 texts, ranging from theoretical treatises rooted in academic traditions of medicine to popularized and utilitarian texts verging on household literature. The texts are grouped into six text categories that facilitate systematic research into the history of medical writing in its disciplinary context: general treatises and textbooks; treatises on specific topics; recipe collections and materia medica ; regimen and health guides; surgical treatises; and samples of the first scientific journal, the Philosophical Transactions.
EMEMT is released on CD-Rom with EMEMT Presenter, purpose-designed software by Raymond Hickey.
The corpus is published with a book, Early Modern English Medical Texts: Corpus Description and Studies, edited by Irma Taavitsainen & Päivi Pahta.
