Somerset Dialect






From the March 2016 issue of Somerset Life




Some non-literary dialect specimens can be found in Elworthy’s “An outline of the grammar of the dialect of West Somerset” (1875), such as the conversation between Jack Stone and Bob Webber (p 101), written down by a Mr. Mildon of Wellington, Somerset, then transcribed into “Glossic”.
