Review

'To everyone who loves words, it will be a treasure-house. It's one of those rare books that combine consummate scholarship with a sense of fun and emotional commitment.' - Sandra Gwynn - Saturday Night

'Much more than a book of definitions, this dictionary is a flahoolach repository of the folklore and the folkways and even the sound and the spirit of pre-Hibernian oilfield, pre-Confederation Newfoundland. It is a book which, combined with a working fireplace, can use up your whole winter.' - Jack Chambers - Globe and Mail

'The whimsy and joyous spirit that even an outsider sees as the defining nature of a granite island that is closer to London than to Winnipeg.' - Kenneth Freed - Los Angeles Times

'A bracing tonic for those who fear that verbal sophistication in Canada has peaked with the McKenzie Brothers. And it is a book that can knock you off your tawt with laughter one moment and glaum you in wonder the next.' - Maclean's

'A majestic work of scholarship ... It illustrates perfectly the way that language evolves to fit historical and geographical circumstances ... Splendid.' - Philip Howard - The Times
