This is an auction for IN THE PADDOCK AND ON THE RUN: THE LANGUAGE OF RURAL NEW ZEALAND, by Dianne Bardsley.

"This is the first book to explore the rich heritage of language the rural sector has generated. For two hundred years people have come from all over the world to work in New Zealand's rural enterprises. From this linguistic melting pot, which includes the addition of indigenous Maori words, phrases and adaptations, the author has composed this book, including historical citations for all words listed. Richly illustrated and often hilarious, it will prove an indispensable resource and a good read for the general reader and researcher alike."

About the Author: Dianne Bardsley is Director of the New Zealand Dictionary Centre at Victoria University of Wellington, working as a researcher and lexicographer within the School of Linguistics and Applied Languages. Her publications include The Land Girls: In a Man's World, 1939-1946 (2000), several New Zealand dictionaries, and she is a contributor to the 'Watch Your Language' column in the Dominion-Post.
