Overview

Originally published in 1915, this book presents a detailed guide to the Hackness dialect then 'spoken by agriculturalists and their labourers on the Wolds and in the Dales of North-Eastern and Eastern Yorkshire'. The text is divided into two main parts, with the first analysing phonetic elements of the dialect and the second examining its grammatical structure and examples of usage. A bibliography and comprehensive glossary are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in local dialects and linguistics.
