Both authors were closely involved in the making of the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary (2009). Roberts, one of its four editors, was associated with the project from it beginning, and published A Thesaurus of Old English with Christian Kay (1995; now on-line). The classification of data of Sylvester’s monograph, Studies in the Lexical Field of Expectation (1994), formed a major contribution to the Historical Thesaurus.
