          Also called the Grammarian's Dictionary. It was in this form that the Benedictine grammarians used the dictionary in their scriptoria to manipulate and agglutinate the original Saharan/Basque vocabulary in their efforts to create the Indo-European languages of Western Europe. Sixteen consonants are the basis of this organization, each of which is subdivided into 25 different VCV's for a total of 400 VCV's. Double R was used as another consonant, adding 25 more VCV's, for a total of 425, of which ca.107 were reserved for future expansion of the VCV dictionary, but never used (see Nyland’s (2001) VCV Formula)

 

          The grammarians apparently had made up cards for the 300+ VCV's which had meanings associated. Each card showed one VCV in large letters, with the varied meanings written under it in small letters. These cards were then laid out a large table with the interlocking vowels forming pairs of cards. This provided the grammarians not only with an enormous number of vocabulary possibilities but also creative entertainment. If a specific word needed to be assembled, a definition or related comment was written and the appropriate word cards arranged. New words would often be accidentally invented which had not yet been called for. In this manner a very large vocabulary was invented with many duplicating words. The result was that English now has so many words that the language needs a thesaurus to keep them all available and alive. It is the only language with such a thesaurus.

 

          The following is a simplified version of the dictionary developed by Nyland (2001).
