The Dictionary of the Welsh Language (GPC) is the only standard historical dictionary of Welsh. It is broadly comparable in method and scope to the Oxford English Dictionary. It presents the vocabulary of the Welsh language from the earliest Old Welsh texts to the everyday language of today. It notes the date of the earliest occurrence of every word with examples throughout the centuries, often noting how the meaning of the word has changed. In the online version the user can see a word’s derivation, a Welsh definition and English synonyms as well as historical examples. It is also possible to search for English words.
