List of Self-Tests

These tests are intended for the use of those who are using the Learn to Read Chaucer Page (or anyone else who may find them useful). The tests for The Shipman's and Prioress's Tales concentrate on basic vocabulary. The rest are more or less randomly generated tests of the lines with page glosses in The Riverside Chaucer or The Canterbury Tales Complete. and they are therefore somewhat more difficult. See How to grade the self-tests. The first few tales are provided with tests (really checklists) on the Explanatory Notes.

The Wife of Bath's Tale: Test
