Hundreds of words and their origins.
on 4 October 2016
This is like a pocket dictionary of British dialect - a collection of words from all over the UK. Of course, it would be impossible to cover all words in around 230 pages but this is a delight to dip into. You could say, ok today I'm going to look at all words starting with L for example. The "dictionary" is interspersed with articles by Simon Elmes about regional accents and their pronunciation. A great chronicle of unusual words - all too soon these words die out.
