In connection with the work on the Old Dutch dictionary (onw) the appellatives in Old Dutch place names from C7–12 were also examined. On the basis of the place names beginning with F from the lexicon of Dutch place names before 1200, the method of finding appellatives in them is explained. For some unexplained place names, possible explanations are proposed.

Im Rahmen der Arbeit am altniederländischen Wörterbuch (onw) wurden auch die Appellative in Ortsnamen aus der altiederländischen Periode (7. bis 12. Jh.) in das Wörterbuch aufgenommen. Anhand der mit F anlautenden Ortsnamen im Lexikon der niederländischen Ortsnamen vor 1200 wird das Verfahren dabei erläutert. Auch werden Vorschläge gemacht für die Deutung einiger dunkler Ortsnamen.

The formula for the liberation of slaves is handed down in the vernacular in chapter xxvi of the ‘Pactus legis Salicae’ and chapter xxxvii of the ‘Lex Salica’ [both C6]. The language of this particular part of the text seems to have strong characteristics of Low Franconian, such as the pronoun thi in the accusative and the prefix â- in verbs. In this respect it differs somewhat from the other so-called ‘Malberg Glosses’ in this Latin text.
