Memorial University's Heritage Web Site edition of the Dictionary of Newfoundland English

The Dictionary of Newfoudland English can be explored on line thanks to the Memorial University of Newfoundland's Heritage Web Site.

In 1998 and 1999 the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, 2d ed, published by the University of Toronto Press, was prepared for inclusion in Memorial University's Heritage Web Site. The material is derived from a scanned version of the 1982 text and, for the Supplement in 1990, the electronic file used to print the book. The scanned text has been proofread and most of the defective text corrected. Since the Web Site cannot efficiently reproduce the International Phonetic Alphabet, all phonetic transcriptions have been removed.
