Manylion

This scholarly and accessible dictionary, the first of its kind in Wales, deals with most of the place-names of Wales as well as prominent features of the landscape.

For each name, the authors provide the evidence of historical forms and dates, identify the etymological elements, comment on the derivation, meaning and linguistic development, and explain the topographic, social or historical significance.

Based on the authors' original research and that of other place-names scholars past and present, this authoritative dictionary also includes an invaluable glossary of the place-names elements
