A Dictionary of Lake District Place‑Names

by Diana Whaley.

Published 2006.

Professor Whaley’s dictionary breaks new ground in treating the names of an area beyond the traditional county boundaries. This work includes names treated in Survey volumes on Cumberland and Westmorland, as well as Ekwall’s volume on Lancashire, but it includes many names that are not touched upon by earlier scholars. Written to be accessible and comprehensive, this is an attractive illustrated volume which defies easy categorisation: it is an essential companion for the walker and tourist, but scholars and local historians will find it invaluable too. Professor Whaley has provided detailed analysis of the names not only from documentary sources but also from contacting local people. The index of elements is a significant contribution to study of the name-vocabulary of north-west England.

The Vocabulary of English Place‑Names

This is a major new dictionary of the elements in English place‑names, edited by the research staff of the CENS/INS. It succeeds A. H. Smith’s English Place‑Name Elements (EPNS Vols. XXV, XXVI), differing from it in various ways. The range is greater: selection will not now be limited to major place-names, and elements in names first recorded before 1750 (rather than before 1500) will be included. There is a much larger body of publications to draw from, including no fewer than forty more EPNS volumes than were available to Smith, together with the great quantity of research material which has appeared during the intervening years in relevant books and journals.

English Place-Names in Skaldic Verse

by Matthew Townend.

Published 1998.

As a result of persistent contact between Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians in the Viking Age, Old Norse skaldic poetry contains a large number of English place-names, cited in celebration of the feats of such figures as Cnut and Oláfr Haraldsson. Matthew Townend’s study is based on a thorough investigation of the manuscript sources and presents a strong case for the use and importance of skaldic evidence.

Anglo-Saxon Mint-Names, Part 1: Axbridge-Hythe

By Jayne Carroll and David N. Parsons.

Published 2007.

The first part of a three-part series, this book examines the evidence provided by Anglo-Saxon coins for the spelling of place‑names, specifically of minting-places. Coins are often closely datable, and many provide pre-datings of names found in documentary sources. Some supplement evidence we already have and confirm etymologies, but some suggesting intriguing alternatives. This work breaks new ground in examining one extensive but challenging corpus of evidence for English place‑names.

Language Contact in the Place-Names of Britain and Ireland

Edited by Paul Cavill and George Broderick.  

Published 2007.

This book is a collection of essays examining how languages interact at points of contact, and the evidence that place-names provide for that interaction. Leading scholars reflect on the names of the Isle of Man, finding Scandinavian and English influence; on names in England, for Celtic and Scandinavian contacts with English; on names in Ireland, tracing the very earliest pre-Celtic and Celtic strands; and on Orkney and Shetland, examining the processes of contact, language death and revival.

Contributors: George Broderick, Paul Cavill, Richard Coates, Richard Cox, Gillian Fellows-Jensen, W.F.H. Nicolaisen, Berit Sandness, Patrizia de Bernardo Stempel, Doreen Waugh.

The Place‑Names of West Thorney [West Sussex]

by Richard Coates.

Published 1999.

This volume has two aims. The first is to begin to make good the sparse treatment of minor names in the English Place‑Name Survey in the early years of its existence. The second is to contribute to an understanding of the processes of naming in self-contained places. It is a study of a place that historical writing has largely ignored, and whose tenurial and agricultural development was steady, and barely touched by power politics.

English Inn and Tavern Names

by Barrie Cox.
