In 1998 and 1999 the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, 2d ed, published by the
University of Toronto Press, was prepared for inclusion in Memorial University's Heritage Web
Site. The material is derived from a scanned version of the 1982 text and, for the Supplement in
1990, the electronic file used to print the book. The scanned text has been proofread and most of
the defective text corrected. Since the Web Site cannot efficiently reproduce the International
Phonetic Alphabet, all phonetic transcriptions have been removed. The errors in the first edition
and listed under Supplement, "Corrections to the First Edition," have been corrected in this
electronic text. In addition, further corrections were made during the proofreading; these are
also included among the "Corrections." Comparison of the entries in the Heritage Web Site with
the hard copy versions will show minor differences in format. Changes have occurred in both
indentation and font size. The topics of the prefatory materials are paginated differently from the
original text. For all the differences, however, this Web version of the Dictionary of
Newfoundland English is a reasonable rendering of the detail embodied in the original text.
