FOREWORD
' I ’HE second of the booklets produced under the auspices of the
Advisory Committee on Spoken English deals with the per-
plexing question of the English place name, and it is to be hoped
that the information here published will be of interest not only to
the English-speaking world, but to the ever-increasing body of
foreigners who make English their second language.
Apart from the linguistic interest of the subject, the B.B.C. is
very seriously concerned in this matter, as is pointed out by Mr.
Lloyd James in his introduction; it is at least desirable that these
names, when they have to be broadcast, should be pronounced in
such a way as to be immediately recognised by inhabitants of the
places mentioned.
Since the appearance of the first booklet, the Advisory Com-
mittee has suffered through the death of its original Chairman,
Mr. Robert Bridges, who gave his colleagues the benefit of his
unrivalled knowledge, and to whose enthusiasm and guidance the
Advisory Committee will always be indebted. The new Chairman
is Mr. Bernard Shaw, and the B.B.C. is grateful to him and to his
colleagues, Mr. Logan Pearsall Smith, Professor Daniel Jones,
Professor Lascelles Abercrombie, Dr. C. T. Onions, Sir Johnston
Forbes-Robertson and Mr. A. Lloyd James for their labours on
behalf of the English language, and for their sound and practical
advice.
J. C. W. Reith,
Director-General.




INTRODUCTION
'HIS list of place-name pronunciations has been compiled for a
-L very special purpose, and it is advisable that those who find the
booklet of interest should not misunderstand this purpose. There is,
as far as we are aware, no book in which the pronunciation of all the
English place names is set out, despite the fact that such a book
ought most certainly to be in existence. The very valuable survey of
English place names carried on under the direction of Professor
Mawer, Provost of University College, London, will be many years
in the making: the volumes that have already appeared are philo-
logical studies of the highest importance, and this little handbook
must not be set alongside these valuable works of reference.
The B.B.C. is faced almost every day with the task of pronouncing
place names, and it is essential, as for instance in S.O.S. messages, in
Board of Agriculture orders concerning the movement of cattle, and
even in sports news, that the names shall be pronounced in a way
that is clearly recognised by inhabitants of the places named. Even
when intelligibility is not at stake, there remains the laudable desire
to pronounce the name in the “right” way. Every man believes that
the name of the place in which he lives should be as well known to
the world as it is to him, and he regards a wrong pronunciation of it
as a slur upon his justifiable local pride. Every mispronunciation of a
place name that the Announcers have made has brought forth letters
of criticism from natives, and in some cases has resulted in angry
letters to the Press. Yet it is quite safe to say that there is no man who
can pronounce “correctly” all the place names in the United King-
dom: indeed, as a test of general knowledge, this little handbook
might rank with the interesting general knowledge question-books
that flourished a few years ago. How do you pronounce Ulgham,
Ogwell, Cahir, Burntisland, Milngavie and Ynysybwl? Is that a fair
question to put to anybody? It is a question that may be put to the
Announcer at any moment, and often so hurriedly that he is unable
to ring up anybody to help him out. No dictionary contains all these
place names, though many of them are to be found in the excellent
Pronouncing Dictionary of Professor Daniel Jones. There remains
nothing for the B.B.G. to do but to make its own book of reference,
and this booklet is its first contribution, containing the pronunciation
of some 1500 English names, a few Manx names, and one or two
Welsh names from border counties.
Possibly the most interesting feature of this work lies in the fact
that all the information it contains has been supplied by listeners;
5


thousands of letters and post-cards have gone to the making of this
little dictionary, which is, like its giant counterpart the Oxford Dic-
tionary, the result of co-operative effort. Listeners familiar with
place names that were frequently mispronounced, or with names so
spelt that their pronunciation was not obvious, were asked to send
them in, and to record as best they could the “right” pronunciation.
The response was far greater than was expected and a very large
quantity of valuable material has been gathered in, of which this is
the first sifting. The information received was in almost every case
tested, a personal letter being sent to the vicar of the parish and to
the postmaster when such a course was possible. When all that could
be done to ensure accuracy had been done, the final result was
passed for publication and appears in this booklet.
It is not, however, to be expected that the work will be free from
error, or that all its pronunciations will pass unquestioned: too much
must not be expected of a work of this kind. Above all it is not
claimed for this booklet that it is a comprehensive collection of all
the known variants of the names recorded. It is merely a record of
one or two authenticated versions that the Announcer may safely use.
There is often a very healthy disagreement among natives of a
place as to the “correct” pronunciation of their place name. Is
Polegate in Sussex to have the accent on the first syllable, or the
second, or on both? This is a very fertile source of possible error, for
when two or more variants are given, we are likely to be criticised for
exercising a choice in favour of any one of them. But so long as the
English language is what it is, with its unique stress accent, remark-
able as to its nature and more remarkable as to the quite inexplicable
principles that govern its distribution and its function, so long will
there be uncertainty about the pronunciation of English words.
There is no uncertainty about the pronunciation of “reside,” or
“subside,” or “residence,” but there is no end to the wrangling over
what is to be done with “subsidence.” So it is with place names.
South-Eastern names ending in “-den,” “-ham” and “-ly” show a
very strong tendency locally to have their principal stress accent on
these syllables, despite the general tendency on the part of similar
names in other parts of the country to avoid a final accent. So when,
as recently happened, an airplane disaster occurs at Marden in
Kent, the Announcer will be criticised however he pronounces the
name. If he says Marden, he will be told that this is only a local
pronunciation and that all educated people in the neighbouring
countryside call it Marden. If he calls it Marden, indignant critics,
ever ready to find fault, will tell him that the place is called Marden,
as any intelligent person ought to know. The Announcer, not being a
6


linguistic expert, cannot be expected to know that the presence of the
long vowel in the first syllable may be heard as a stress accent in
itself, that when he says Marden he is really saying Marden, and it is
not unlikely that he will be told that the place is never pronounced
with two accents. The truth of the matter is, as it so often is in Eng-
lish, that all three varieties of the name are in common use, and that
there is no one variant of which it can be specifically said: “This and
this only is the right pronunciation.” What the B.B.C. has done is to
try to find out how the people in the place wish the name to be pro-
nounced when it has to be broadcast, so that there shall be immedi-
ate recognition.
The position of the stress accent is likely to cause trouble in
another way, because Northern and Southern English do not always
see eye to eye in the matter. A word like “apologise” has its principal
stress accent on the second syllable in Southern English, and on the
fourth syllable in Northern English. “Birkenhead” and “Newcastle”
are generally stressed, in Northern English, on the last sounded vowel,
and in Southern English on the first; there is likely to be considerable
discussion as to how these names are to be “correctly” pronounced.
If the Announcer gives the Southern pronunciation he may be told
that he ought to know better, whereas if he gives the Northern
variety he may be accused of pedantry or provincialism. And if, as
in the case of “Newcastle,” the Northern variety uses a short “a” in
“-castle” where the Southern uses a long vowel, we really have to
deal with two very widely differing variants—“Newcaasle” and
“Newcassle.” The only solution of this problem is to regard the
Northern variety as one peculiar to Northern English, and since
Announcers are not required to use Northern English, to recom-
mend the Southern variety for broadcasting, at any rate from
Southern stations. So Glass Houghton will be pronounced “Glaas
Howton” in the Southern way, but if the Announcer happens to be
a native of the place and pronounces it in the native way, he will be
forgiven.
We are, of course, once again face to face with the perennial ques-
tion of Daventry, and all the storm that its pronunciation raises in
the teacups of the curious. There are people who believe that they
are doing a service to their country and its language when they
advocate that a word looking like Daventry must sound like Daintry.
It is difficult to see what would be gained, but it is equally difficult to
persuade these people away from their point of view. If it is con-
sidered vulgar to say “haint we” for “haven’t we,” why is it not
vulgar to say “Daintry” for “Daventry,” for the principle governing
the loss of the “v” is the same in both cases? But “haint we” cannot
7


appear in print unless it appears as emerging from the mouth of an
uncouth speaker; its use by the educated is a joke to-day, though
there doubtless was a time when it was quite respectable. If Daven-
try is really serious in its desire to be known to the world as Daintry,
then it must dress for the part. It cannot have it both ways. There
is, so far as we are aware, no Act of Parliament that prevents a town,
a town clerk, a mayor, a corporation, a postmaster, a railway com-
pany or an ordnance surveyor from spelling a place name as they
wish. The old records, collected by Professor Mawer and his col-
leagues, show that change has been the order of the day in the
spelling of our place names. Daintry looks quite as English as
Daventry, and has the merit of saving a syllable; but it is too late in
the day! Every country in the world has now seen the name Daven-
try in print, and most nations are familiar with the sound of it. But
if the B.B.C. had really meant it they could have changed all that;
one issue of the Radio Times with Daventry printed as Daintry, and
the battle would have been won! So Slaithwaite must take heart of
grace and face adversity with all the courage that her famous county
breeds. So long as she looks like “Slaithwaite” she must be content
to be called something like it, and “Slowit ” will be a term of endear-
ment restricted to her nearest and dearest, who may proudly pro-
claim their allegiance to her by addressing her as such. But so long
as she masquerades as “Slaithwaite,” then “Slaithwaite” she must be
to the outside world, and “Slaithwaite” she will be to the Announcer.
Cirencester must settle her own affairs, and not expect the B.B.C.
to settle them for her.
Time was when the spelling of a place name was known to one or
two at most of the inhabitants—the lord of the manor, possibly, and
the priest; the name persisted as a spoken habit, a congeries of
sounds arising from certain physical adjustments carried out by
speakers. Like all speech, it had no tangible or visible existence, and
persisted by “word of mouth” from generation to generation, slowly
changing, submitting to the fate that befell all the rest of the words
spoken in the neighbourhood, forming part and parcel of the local
vocabulary, and fulfilling its function so long as it served to call up
in the minds of hearers the place associated with it. In the mind that
received it or in the mouth that uttered it, it had no capital letter to
distinguish it from the rest of speech; it went the way of all words.
The clerk wrote it on maps, in leases, in charters, in marriage and
funeral registers; but the natives knew nothing of this, except the
very few. Then things began to happen; railways were built and
stations had to have names put on them; post offices appeared;
schools were set up, and in half a century every child could read and
8


write. Letters, postcards and telegrams come to the most isolated
village, which in some form or other has become somebody’s
“address.” The name has to be written; it has to have a correct
“spelling,” and those who are interested in the origins of our place
names and the fantastic spelling evolutions they have performed
through the centuries will find their story in Professor Mawer’s
survey.
If the Railway Companies and the Post Office had called together
an advisory committee to sit upon the question of spelling place
names, the results might have been better. Ulgham might have
appeared as Uffam, Congresbury as Coomsbury, Poughill in Corn-
wall as Poffill, and Poughill in Devon as Powill. This would cer-
tainly have simplified matters, but it would have robbed life of one
of its minor excitements, and furnished the pedant—especially that
pearl among pedants, the amateur etymologist—with one less excuse
for the pursuit of his folly. Every word has its past, and it is well that
we should know its past, but the word should not suffer eternally for
its past and be compelled to forego all development in the future
merely because its past is interesting. Many men live down their
past, but few words, visual words, are allowed to do so: the moment
they show a desire to reform, up steps the pedant and says, “Re-
member your past!” So we bow to him and pass on; it might be as
well to whisper a word in his ear and tell him that English may one
day be a world language, but not until he and his shibboleth are dead
and gone. The place name is only a word after all, and what is to be
said of it is true of all other words; the abiding paradox of language is
that in the world of Speech the order of the day is “Advance!”,
while in the world of Print the order is “As you were!”
It is much easier to say what this booklet is not than what it is. It
is not, for instance,
(a) a collection of popular local pronunciations;
(Z>) a comprehensive collection of all the known variants of every
place name included;
(c) a list of “correct” pronunciations;
(c?) a phonetic record of the dialectal pronunciations used by
natives.
Readers who expect it to be any of these things will be disappointed;
it is extremely doubtful whether there will ever exist a work com-
bining all these aspects of the question. But it is hoped that readers
of more modest expectation, such as expect to find just a collection
of English place names, with a hint or two as to how to pronounce
them with a fair prospect of success, may not be altogether dis-
9


appointed. It is too much to hope that a work of this kind contains
no errors; if we wait for perfection we shall never do anything, and in
the meantime the Announcer must get on with his difficult task.
Any reader who questions a pronunciation recorded in this book has
only to send us a well-substantiated criticism, and the matter will be
put right in the second edition.
Above all, let it not be counted against the B.B.C. that it refuses
to honour the time-worn local pronunciation. Sawbridgeworth may
have been Sapsed in the past, but it is to be Sawbridgeworth in the
future, at any rate when it is broadcast. Some of these historical
local pronunciations are included in this booklet, but not all of them.
In the first booklet published by the B.B.G. Advisory Committee
on Spoken English it was pointed out that correct pronunciation was
like correct behaviour—the custom of the educated, having regard
to established convention, public taste and to the object in view,
which is, in the case of speech, intelligibility. Anyone in need of a
half-hour’s mental exercise might try his hand at defining “pro-
nunciation,” with an explanatory note on “correct pronunciation.”
Having done this, he might then play with the question of repre-
senting pronunciation on paper. How far is it possible to represent
visually things that have no visual existence? Sound cannot be made
visible, and light cannot be made audible: the gulf between these
two natural phenomena is unbridgeable. We can see the effects of
sound and hear the effects of light by means of adequate scientific
apparatus, but nothing that we can do will ever make speech visible.
Speech is a jumble of noises and rhythms and tunes, whereas the
printed page is what it is, and it takes most of us many years to trans-
late one into the other. Reading is the translation of sight into sound,
and writing the translation of sound into sight—both of them
laborious processes, because the conventions to be observed seem
endless. But to pretend that what we write is how we pronounce, or
how we should pronounce, is, of course, mere foolishness. It is com-
pletely and utterly impossible to represent the pronunciation of a
language by means of visual symbols or letters.
There is a widespread belief that so-called phonetic alphabets can
achieve this end, and the invention of such alphabets has been a
favourite pastime of linguistic scholars. A. J. Ellis, the nineteenth-
century mathematician and philologist, invented one; Melville Bell
invented one and Sweet adapted it; Lepsius, the German linguist,
invented another, which has been further expanded by Meinhof, the
great African linguist. Jespersen of Copenhagen invented a semi-
mathematical system of writing down speech sounds, and an inter-
national body of linguists led by Vietor of Germany and Passy of
io


France evolved another. They are all excellent, but they all fail,
because they try to do the impossible. Speech cannot be written
perfectly, but it can be written better in a phonetic alphabet than
in another.
We cannot write down the speech of any one man, and it follows
that to write down the speech of a nation is impossible. Who can say
what is the English pronunciation of the word “more”? It may be
moa, moor, maa, maar, moi, mair, mo:r or what not, and any one
of these may vary from speaker to speaker. If we say that there is a
sound “ze” in the word “man,” whose “ze” are we to take? Is it to be
the one used by the chairman of the local bench of magistrates, by
the vicar, by the town clerk? People who talk about standardising
English, and especially those who accuse the B.B.C. of aiming at a
dead level of uniformity in the speech of their Announcers, should
think twice before they speak. There is no standard English “se” as
there is a standard English pint, or yard, or middle C (if indeed there
is a standard C). It is desirable that a conductor should continue to
hear all his players tune to his standard pitch if chaos is to be avoided,
but the Announcers are not paraded so that they might all tune in to
the same “ae.” “t” and “s” are common symbols, but the “t” sounds
used in England are to be counted by the score, and the “s’s” vary
like the winds of heaven, from the fierce blast that whistles beneath a
false palate to the fluffy breeze that blows through the open spaces of
the mouth. There will never be a standard “ae” or a standard “t” or
a standard “s” or a standard English; and there will never be a
written record of English pronunciation, with its inimitable rhythms
and its significant intonations. All that we can say of the phonetic
alphabet is that it does itswork a little more satisfactorily than the tra-
ditional alphabets of the world, all of which have their limitations.
In this booklet we have tried the experiment of representing pro-
nunciations in two ways:—
(1) by means of the International Phonetic Alphabet, in the
form used for what is known as “broad transcription”;
(2) by means of a modified spelling with diacritical marks.
Those readers who are unfamiliar with phonetic alphabets will find
the second system easier to handle; this system is not very helpful to
foreigners, as it rests largely upon traditional orthography. It is,
moreover, not very accurate, or free from ambiguity.
The pronunciation that we have attempted to record is not that
of any particular dialect; it is certainly not South-Eastern. It is,
rather, a normalised form, suitable alike for the whole of the English-
11


speaking world. The phonetic transcription can be read largely ad
libitum: if, for example, the word “moor” is transcribed “muor,” this
does not mean that you are to pronounce “moor” in this way—it
merely means that you are to pronounce it as you have always done.
Phonetic alphabets are not to be regarded as chemical formulae,
where the symbols have constant and universal values. H2SO4 may
be composed of elements that are eternally constant, and J=|g/2
may be the expression of a truth that is undisturbed by human emo-
tion, but phonetic letters have none of the constancy of chemical and
mathematical symbols. If I say Clapham is “'klcepam,” I am not
quite sure that I know what this means, but I do know that in other
walks of life Clapham may equally well be ‘c|klaepm” or “'klae’m”
or “*klaephom”; there is no universal or eternal constancy about the
value of “k” or “1” or “as,” etc. “k” stands for any “k” sound that
lives in the English-speaking world, and the same may be said of all
the others. And when all is said and done our so-called phonetic
transcription gives us no indication of the rhythm of the word or of
its intonation. The fact that we mark the position of the stress accent
by a mark 1 before the stressed syllable is not to be regarded as some-
thing final or absolute. It is of little use to the Japanese or to the
Persian, because what is stress accent to us is not stress accent to
them. The more one plays with this question of writing down sounds
on paper, the more hopeless it appears—and, nevertheless, it is a task
that must be attempted. Some day there will be one alphabet for all
the languages of the world, and it will be a “phonetic” alphabet. If
Europe and America retain their political, cultural and financial
ascendancy, this alphabet will be a modification of the Roman, but
if the centre of power moves to the East, then we may expect some-
thing Chinese, or Arabic, or Indian, to develop within the next few
thousand years. For the present we must do what we can with the
means at our disposal, but we shall do well never to forget that a
“phonetic” alphabet is a contradiction in terms—at most it can only
mean an alphabet with fewer and less arbitrary conventions than
existing alphabets.
In conclusion I wish to express my sincere thanks to all the corre-
spondents and listeners whose efforts have contributed to this booklet,
to Professor Mawer for allowing me to see some of his local pronun-
ciations, and to Professor Daniel Jones for much invaluable advice
and help.

The International Phonetic Alphabet as adapted for the
REPRESENTATION OF ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION
VOWELS.
Long vowels are indicated by the sign
ii—as in see, bead, grief, etc.
i—as in sit, city. The two vowels in the word “city” are not always
identical in quality, but they are sufficiently near to be repre-
sented by one letter.
e—as in bed, dead.
ae—as in man.
a:—as in pa, car, calm. In Southern English it is used in many
words which have no letter “r” or “1” after “a.” E.g. dance,
pass, path, bath. In Northern English its use is confined to
words with “ar” or “al,” e.g. bard, card, balm, psalm, calf.
□—as in not, lodge.
□i—as in nought, paw.
o—as sometimes in the first syllable of potato, or as sometimes in
words like port, more.
u—as in book.
u:—as in too, school.
a—as in one, bun, cup.
a;—as in burn, fir, fur.
a—an omnibus letter that does duty for all sorts of unstressed
vowels, e.g. the first sound in “again,” the second sound in
“Saturday,” the last sound in “actor,” or “idea”; it is the sound
generally in the definite article when a consonant follows; e.g.
“the boy,” and in the indefinite article, “a boy,” when they are
not accented. Scholars always quarrel over this unhappy vowel
sound, or rather over the many shades of unstressed vowel that
it has to do duty for. Some say that there is and should be a
difference in the quality of the sounds used in the final syllables
of words like “actor,” “singer,” “nature,” “influenza”; others
say that the final vowels are all alike—a kind of nondescript
vowel sound that baffles description and orthography alike.
What must not be forgotten is that many unstressed syllables in
English lose the distinctive quality of vowel sound found when
the syllables are stressed. There is no doubt about the quality of
13


the vowel in the word “to” when it is said in isolation; but there
is endless arguing as to what it is and what it ought to be in
phrases like “to be” or “to-day.” In the transcriptions that
appear in this book, the letter “a” has not been driven to death;
it has been used sparingly. But it has been inserted in some
places where it may cause surprise, e.g. Egerton is written
edjartan, although many people pronounce it edjartn, with a
syllabic “n.”
DIPHTHONGS.
ei—as in they, day.
ou—as in no, know, as pronounced by those people who make no
difference in the pronunciation of these words.
ai—as in my.
au—as in now.
oi—as in boy.
io(r)—as in the last syllable of idea (without “r”) and fear (with
“r”).
eo(r)—as in where, fair.
□a (r)—as in more, which is pronounced also in various ways
(see p. u).
uo(r)—as in poor, moor, which are pronounced in various ways,
e.g. puo(r), poo(r), pog(r), and poi(r) in the South, and also
puir in the North.
SEMI-VOWELS.
w—as in will. Some speakers pronounce initial “w” and “wh”
alike, others make a distinction. Words which contain “wh” are
transcribed with “hw” in this book.
j—the initial sound in yes.
CONSONANTS.
b, d, f, g (hard), h, k, 1, m, n, p, r, s, t, v, z, have their normal
values. It is to be noticed that “h” is often not pronounced at
the beginning of unaccented syllables, as in the common place-
name ending “-ham,” which is usually unaccented except in
Kent and Sussex.
The letter “r” causes more difficulty in English than all the
others put together. In South-Eastern English it is silent except
when followed by a vowel—it is pronounced in “red” and
“very,” but not in “car” or “card.” It is sometimes pronounced
in “car” if a vowel follows, e.g. “the car is at the door.” Here
the vast majority of the English-speaking world is at variance
14


with the South-Eastern variety, and this cleavage is a source of
much friction. Since this booklet is intended not only for South-
Eastern speakers but for the whole English-speaking world, the
“r” is shown in every case. This illustrates again the difficulty,
mentioned above, of transcribing the pronunciation of a nation,
rj—the sound of “ng” in sing. The group “ng” represents two
pronunciations in some dialects of English, i.e.
(1) as in singer, hanger, hanging.
(2) as in finger, anger, longer.
Some dialects pronounce all such words in the second way.
0—the sound of “th” in thick.
3—the sound of “th” in then.
J —the sound of “sh” in she, or “ss” in mission, or “ti” in education.
3—the sound of “s” in pleasure.
x—the sound of “ch” in loch, used nowadays only in Scottish,
Welsh or Irish names.
tj—the sound of “ch” in church.
d3—the sound of “j” and “dge” in judge.
STRESS ACCENT.
The stress accent is marked by the sign “1” before the stressed
syllable.
