Shetland Words
Alastair & Adaline Christie-Johnston

Shetland Words is the first new Shetland dictionary for many years. It is the result of almost three years painstaking research by Alastair and Adaline Christie-Johnston and contributing editor Neil Anderson, with help and input from many other Shetland dialect enthusiasts. The result is an easy to use and informative compilation of Shetland words, which for the first time, attempts to differentiate between words believed to be of Norn origin (printed in blue text) and others.
