Dictionary of Newfoundland English

Edited by G.M Story, W.J Kirwin and J. D. A Widdowson. Second Edition with Supplement

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.
