Regular price £35.00

Compiled as part of John Scott’s Masters degree in Orkney and Shetland Studies (2014), this dictionary includes entries from numerous sources from the past 150 years, and draws on his knowledge of over 20 languages for his explanatory notes, observations and etymologies. The aim of this dictionary is to place, in a single volume, all weather-words gleaned from all the major Orcadian and Shetlandic dialect dictionaries created over the past 150 years, thus allowing the reader to compare the different nuances of definition made by every lexicographer.
