Excerpt from A Glossary of West Worcestershire Words Tms glossary of west-worcestershire words, now published by the English Dialect Society, has been compiled with a view to further one object of the Society's work, viz. To ascertain in what different districts the use of the same word prevails. To this I would call the attention of critics outside the Society, who are apt to conclude, when they meet in a local glossary with an old word with which they are familiar, that the compiler fancied its use was peculiar to his own county.
