This book is the first critical edition of White Kennett's Etymologicon Anglicanum (British Library, MS Lansdowne 1033), a long forgotten etymological compilation of the late 1690s with a substantial amount of regional dialect material. The first part introduces and contextualizes Kennett's work, and the second offers a fully annotated edition of the text with substantial commentary
