Researcher's projects

Since 2000, I have been writing a historical dictionary of polar English which adds the English words of the Arctic to the text of my book The Antarctic Dictionary (CSIRO/Museum Victoria, Melbourne 2000).

There were about 2000 headwords in The Antarctic Dictionary. There might be something like an equal number in Arctic English.
