This site is based on the sister site in Japanese and was launched in August 2009 on an old Google Sites page. It was transferred to the current page in July 2021. The last update was made on 26 September 2022.

Many thanks to the visitors' support for more than ten years, I have been recently invited to write a chapter 'Internet resources for the history of English', to appear in vol. III of New Cambridge History of the English Language (general editor: Raymond Hickey). I took this opportunity to make some major updates of this website, e.g. addition of new pages, reorganisation of existing pages and cleaning of old links.

This site has a Twitter account, which shares the latest news about HEL. Please feel free to follow it!
