Some copies were bound in one volume with Fourteenth Century Verse & Prose.

Possibly reprinted after this as well. Although printed separately to Fourteenth Century Verse & Prose the sheets were bound together afterwards so separate copies of A Middle English Vocabulary may not exist for all of the above dates.

Copies of A Middle English Vocabulary on its own have been seen dated 1922, 1925, 1929, 1933, 1939 and 1947.

A simplified reversal of the glossary was published in 2002 as Fourteenth Century Glossary. (Edited by P. Partridge, Privately Printed, Brisbane, ISBN 0957857136, Spiral Bound)
