Abstract:

Originally published in 1923, this book forms an in-depth record of the vernacular speech of Roxburghshire. Rather than offering a full vocabulary, something already covered by various Scottish dictionaries, the text was written to provide information on the distinctive terms of the region, both past and present, with illustrative quotations. A detailed introduction, bibliography on literature related to the dialect of Roxburghshire and appendices are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in etymology and Scottish linguistic heritage.

The Roxburghshire word-book: being a record of the special vernacular vocabulary of the county of Roxburgh, with an appendix of specimens.
