Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Welsh Vocabulary of the Bangor District

MY aim in the present book has been to make an accurate record of the words in colloquial use in one clearly defined district in Wales. In a language like Welsh, which at present has no recognized spoken standard, no hard and fast line can be drawn in the Spoken language between literary words and those which belong purely to the domain of dialect; and there are probably few words which in their form, use, or pronunciation could be said to be precisely identical in all parts of the country. Hence my design has been not to compile a glossary of a particular dialect but rather a vocabulary of spoken Welsh as represented by the usage in a particular district. It appeared to me that such a compilation, however imperfect and incomplete, could scarcely fail to be of service for comparative purposes to workers in other dialects as well as to those who desire to obtain a knowledge of colloquial Welsh, and at the same time might possibly be the means of preserving some words and expressions which are now rapidly becoming obsolete and are known only to the older inhabitants. I have spared no pains to make the work as accurate as possible, but it would be vain to pretend to any hope that I have always succeeded. The number of words still in use might probably be largely extended but I am unwilling to delay further the publication of a work which has already occupied me for nine years.
