This chapter discusses Glosule and Note dunelmenses, two Priscian commentaries written by William of Conches written between ca. 1080 and ca. 1150. The Glosule and the related glosses inspired William's commentary on Priscian's Institutiones grammaticae, which deals with theoretical questions related to grammar. The Glosule was intended to harmonise grammatical concepts with contemporary interest in logic, mainly by exploring such issues as the purposes of the various parts of speech. William's commentary also offers a theoretical analysis of syntax and the arrangement of the parts of speech based on natural order.
