Abstract

The Reverend John Jamieson's contribution to Scottish lexicography is central to the historiography of the study of Scots as a distinct variety of language. Furthermore, his methodologies have proven extremely influential for subsequent major Scottish and English dictionary projects, yet his life and accomplishments are not well-known in either academic or popular culture. Susan Rennie's book attempts to redress Jamieson's obscure status, recognising his national and international significance, and contextualising the man and his scholarly achievements.
