The Yorkshire Historic Dictionary
19th February 2019 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm £6
Join Alexandra Medcalf, Archivist on the Yorkshire Historic Dictionary project at the Borthwick Institute, as she unveils some of her discoveries!
This talk will use the lexis of the Yorkshire Historic Dictionary to discuss the significance of historic language; to explore Yorkshire’s forgotten or misplaced historic words; and, to consider how remembering them can lead to a greater appreciation of our heritage, communities and landscapes.
The Yorkshire Historic Dictionary project began in November 2017, thanks to funding from the Marc Fitch Fund. Using the work of Dr George Redmonds, in partnership with the Yorkshire Archaeological and Historical Society and in commemoration of Dr David Hey, the project seeks to create a record of Yorkshire’s historic language, from the medieval period to the present day.
