A dictionary of Hiberno-English, which differs from Standard English in two ways: first, it is full of borrowings from Irish, with words or phrases imported directly or in anglicized form; and secondly, it comprises archaic words obsolete in Standard English, but still present in Irish.

About the Author:

Terence Patrick Dolan is associate professor in English in University College Dublin. A well-known broadcaster and guest lecturer, he travels extensively and is regarded as the pre-eminent academic authority on Hiberno-English.

Review:

The Guardian Tom Paulin 'Terry Dolan's A Dictionary of Hiberno-English ... is a pioneering work of scholarship which ascertains the nature of English as it is spoken and written in Ireland. I see it as one of the foundation stones of a new civic culture in the island.' Irish News Owen Kelly '... Professor Dolan's excellent dictionary, where you find such gems as "hallion" and "at the heel of the hunt" sitting comfortably with the Irish and English origins of much of our speech, is a significant contribution.
