The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources is a British Academy research project based at the University of Oxford.

Based entirely on original research, the DMLBS is the most comprehensive dictionary of Medieval Latin to have been produced and the first ever to focus on British Medieval Latin.

Due to be completed in print in 2013, the DMLBS is a definitive survey of the vocabulary of one of the most important languages in British and European history.
