The lost language of New Founde Lande and the First English of the Americas

The rich heritage of Newfoundland’s most interesting incarnation of the English language originates from England’s West Country, is further enriched by the Irish, and finally receives deserved attention in this long-researched book. Author Russell Bragg reveals the traditional dialects of Newfoundland English by providing a dictionary of nearly two thousand annotated samples in standardized spelling derived from ancestral origins, and including etymologies, a pronunciation guide, and cross-referencing notes. Also included is a detailed exposition of Newfoundland English’s historical background with supporting graphics, brief morphological analyses, and a first –time orthography.
