Notes
Reprints Tolkien's lecture Chaucer as a Philologist: The Reeve's Tale from Transactions of the Philological Society 1934.

In the lecture (delivered on 16th May 1931) Tolkien discusses Chaucer’s use of the Northern Middle English dialect as a linguistic joke in The Reeve’s Tale.

Reprinted in Tolkien Studies V.
