The need for a lexicographic tool to facilitate access to Walther's poetry was recognised even prior to 1844, when C August Hornig published his 'Glossarium zu den Gedichten Walthers von der Vogelweide'. Although based on Lachmann's 1827 edition, Hornig's work was important enough to warrant a reprint in 1979. The rhyme-word index published with the Glossarium listed rhyming words with their verse locations; but the researcher interested in considering the contexts in which these rhymes were used needed to consult separate locations in Walther's poetry for each occurrence. The rhyme-word concordance in this volume is, to our knowledge, the first reference work to offer rhyming words of Middle High German poetry in a complete verse context. A supplementary alphabetical list of all rhyme-words and their frequencies summarises and provides a convenient overview of Walther's rhyming techniques.
