BIBLIOGRAPHICAL LIST

OF

THE WORKS THAT HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED,

TOWARDS ILLUSTRATING

THE PROVINCIAL DIALECTS

OF

ENGLAND.

BY JOHN RUSSELL SMITH.

“ Much of the peculiarity of dialect prevalent in Anglo-Saxon times, is preserved
even to the present day in the provincial dialects of the same districts. In these local
dialects, then, remnants of the Anglo Saxon tongue may be found in its least altered,
most uncorrupt, aud therefore in its purest state. Having a strong and expressive
language of their own, they had little desire and few opportunities to adopt foreign
idioms or pronunciation, and thus to corrupt the purity of their ancient language. Our
present polished phrase and fashionable pronunciation are often new, and, as deviating
from primitive usage, faulty and corrupt. We are, therefore, much indebted to those
zealous and patriotic individuals who have referred us to the archaisms of our nervou
language, by publishing provincial glossaries, and giving specimens of their dialects.”
