Excerpt From A Glossary Of The Dialect Of The Hundred Of Lonsdale, North And South Of The Sands, In The County Of LancasterIt Will Probably Be Remarked By Some Into Whose Hands The Glossary Will Pass, As It Has Been By The Editor, That A Considerable Number Of The Words In The Glossary, Jointly With Their Definitions, Appear To Have Been Taken Bodily From Halliwell S Dictionary Of Archaic And Provincial Words This Is Explained By A Note From The Late Herbert Coleridge To Mr Peacock, Recommending Him In Reference To A Suggestion Evidently Originating With Mr Peacock Himself On Going Through Halliwell S Dictionary In Connection With His Own Collections And Researches To Mark All The Words He Might Identify As Belonging To That District Of Lancashire The Dialect Of Which He Purposed To Illustrate In Some Instances The Definitions Attached To These Words Have Been Slightly Modified, Or, Perhaps, Remodelled But, Of The Majority, It Will Be Seen That They Are Left As Copied By Mr Peacock.In Only A Very Few Cases Has The Editor Taken Upon Himself To Introduce Any New Matter And, In These Few, Only With A View To Illustration Where Illustration Seemed To Be Called For, Or Likely To Add To The Interest Of The Glossary Itself In Every Such Case, Whensoever The Addition Exceeds Two Or Three Words In Length, The Matter Added Is Marked Off From The Context By Brackets, And The Syllable Ed Is Printed At Its End.About The PublisherForgotten Books Publishes Hundreds Of Thousands Of Rare And Classic Books Find At Www.forgottenbooks.comThis Book Is A Reproduction Of An Important Historical Work Forgotten Books Uses State Of The Art Technology To Digitally Reconstruct The Work, Preserving The Original Format Whilst Repairing Imperfections Present In The Aged Copy In Rare Cases, An Imperfection In The Original, Such As A Blemish Or Missing Page, May Be Replicated In Our Edition We Do, However, Repair The Vast Majority Of Imperfections Successfully Any Imperfections That Remain Are Intentionally Left To Preserve The State Of Such Historical Works.
