The juxtaposition of Chaucer's TROUTHE and TREW(E) with PDE TRUTH and TRUE. A change or continuity?
- Agnieszka Elżbieta Wawrzyniak
The aim of the paper is to focus on ME trouthe (truth) and trew (true) in The Canterbury Tales in order to reconstruct the concept of TRUTH in Chaucer's world. The paper will refer to the etymology of the lexemes as well as to the semantic similarities and differences between the recorded two concepts. The analysis will focus on the variety of contexts in which trouthe and trew were recorded in order to show why ME trew differed from trouthe. Furthermore, there is an attempt also to juxtapose the ME concepts of trouthe and trew with PDE truth and true and thereby reflecting on two distinct cultures and hence on two distinct worldviews.
