Abstract

In this chapter I will look at some aspects of the treatment of non-standard and regional varieties in historical dictionaries, especially the <i>OED</i>. I will examine closely the spelling forms found in a series of passages written by non-professional, na&#239;ve writers, and the challenges for interpretation, presentation, and labelling which such data pose for a historical dictionary. My main focus will thus be quite narrow, but I hope that this detailed approach will raise issues and challenges which resonate with those faced by other researchers in this area.
