The Mackem Dictionary - Second Edition - Hardback
The hard back version of the definitive guide to the Mackem
dialect. It looks dead smart, and makes a noise when you knock on it.
The first edition of the dictionary was a runaway success, becoming Sunderland Waterstone’s bestselling book ever (have a load of that JK Rowling) and raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. This second expanded edition includes an extra 37 entries based on the suggestions of the canny lads and lasses of Wearside.
Created by artist Paul Swinney in collaboration with Sunderland based publishers ALS, the Mackem Dictionary captures the rich range of words and phrases commonly used on Wearside, all set out in a tongue-in-cheek dictionary format.
Physical copies available from Waterstones; The ALS Shop; Pop Recs; Hot Rats; Serendipity; SAFC Museum; Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens...
