Thanks again, just one thing I will need from you and that is how would you like your name listed in the cataloge and if you have an url address and if so would you like that listed as well.

Lucy :)

Hi there, Lucy -

You're welcome :D. For the catalogue name, Andy from Inverarnan will do - as for the website, mine is www.melys.ws - there's nothing on it yet, since I only just got it, but there should be in a few days time.

Best wishes,

Andy

Does anyone have any insight into what kind of dialect is being used in this novel? I get the sense it's some kind of Northern dialect... any thoughts? The setting is fictional, so I'm not sure where to place it...

I've wondered this myself, Gloriana: I researched it, and it appears that it was Lincolnshire - the Trent at Gainsborough to be precise - which she chose to be the setting of the Mill on the Floss, largely because it was realistically floody there.

Hmmm... thanks, paradise.camouflage. I have no idea what a Lincolnshire accent sounds like, so I probably will not attempt to duplicate it... :)

Here's 57 - I had a little trouble as my browser crashed before it sent, but I sent another, which replaced the former upload and uploaded fully:

:) It's a pretty strange and obscure accent that one doesn't here so often anymore. In the old days, they pronounced 'late' like 'ley-ert' there...
