John Mason’s Longtown Glossary
Graham Shorrocks (Ed)
John Mason’s ‘Glossary of the Longtown Dialect’ was originally hand-written on the backs of sheets of wallpaper nearly forty years ago.
The Lakeland Dialect Society realised the importance of this document and managed to have it printed in book form.
It faithfully records a version of Cumbrian speech which, though quite distinct from that of Carlisle only eight miles to the south, yet hardly has a trace of Scots, though Gretna Green and Canonbie are even nearer.
