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.
