You do not have access to this book. How to get access.
In this work, the author assembles information that will satisfy linguists, historians and geographers alike. The corpus of Cardiganshire place-names contains some 15,000 headwords. Each headword is followed by a location by grid-reference and when possible by a notation of pronunciation in phonetic script, by historical forms, and often by a discussion of etymologies. This work is primarily meant to be a record of the locations, age, pronunciation and explanation of place-names in the county of Cardiganshire in Wales: the names being arranged mainly in alphabetical order under civil-parish headings. Some introductory chapters detail the mode of presentation and spelling guidelines, as well as giving an overview of the development of academic toponymic work in Wales.
