Abstract: The central theme of the 1999 publication from the ongoing English Dialect Lexicon project at the National Centre for English Cultural Tradition (NATCECT) at the University of Sheffield, 'Lexical Erosion in English Regional Dialects', exemplifies a concern to record particular cases of the general and observable trend that "many regional dialect words and expressions familiar to the older generations were not being taken up in the everyday speech of younger people."
