Review

"Scholars will need this book...Interested amateurs will use this as a browsing book. It will have a long shelf life and be much loved by Anglophiles." E. Joan Wilson Miller, Illinois State University, H-Net

"This will undoubtedly be the definitive dictionary of its kind for decades to come." -- American Reference Books Annual

Book Description

This major new reference work is a totally new compilation, based on the archives of the English Place-Name Society and reflecting the most recent scholarship in the subject, of all the names of cities, towns, villages, hamlets, rivers, streams, hills and other geographical locations included in the Ordnance Survey Road Atlas of Great Britain (1983) plus many more. This dictionary will be of interest to geographers, historians and historical linguists as well as language scholars. It will appeal to anyone interested in the history and settlement of England.
