Product Description

Originally written for 6th grade readers, this is nevertheless a useful companion glossary for anyone reading or teaching The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  This is a comprehensive glossary of the culture, customs and language of early 1900 Yorkshire, England as represented in The Secret Garden.  There are over 400 entries for English words, slang words, Yorkshire dialectal words, medical terms, gardening terms and more that can’t commonly be found in a 6th grade student’s dictionary.  To accommodate the different editions of The Secret Garden, words are listed by chapter in the order they appear in the book with an alphabetical index in the back.  Also included is a brief essay regarding the Yorkshire dialect to assist readers with Burnett’s extensive use of this expressive form of speech.
