Abstract

This paper addresses several expressions from the Anglo-Latin chronicles of the ninth-twelfth centuries connected with the military milieu (e.g. <i>dominor loco funeris or accipio victoriam</i>) and their possible sources in Old English phraseology. The Anglo-Latin data is compared to the <i>Anglo-Saxon Chronicle</i> where similar phrases are attested and to the use of military vocabulary in Latin sources outside England. The coinage of such expressions is analysed in terms of first-language lexical transfer.
