This is a very important contribution to Anglo-Irish lexicography and an excellent source of information on the English of Ireland Dictionaries. Now in paperback, this important work fills a long-felt void in the study of both Irish and English, by providing the first extensive compilation of Hiberno-English words, their meanings and etymologies. The legendary eloquence of the Irish is here shown to be the product of not one, but two languages.

This applies equally to the spoken word as to the great landmarks of Anglo-Irish literary achievement. The author has collected, from written and (predominantly) oral sources, the most comprehensive evidence to date of the influence of Gaelic on modern spoken English in Ireland.
