Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
In this work, the author assembles information that will satisfy linguists, historians and geographers alike. The corpus of Cardiganshire place-names contains some 15,000 headwords. Each headword is followed by a location by grid-reference and when possible by a notation of pronunciation in phonetic script, by historical forms, and often by a discussion of etymologies. This work is primarily meant to be a record of the locations, age, pronunciation and explanation of place-names in the county of Cardiganshire in Wales: the names being arranged mainly in alphabetical order under civil-parish headings. Some introductory chapters detail the mode of presentation and spelling guidelines, as well as giving an overview of the development of academic toponymic work in Wales.
