An Index of the Contents of the Transactions for the Years 1951-1960

At first glance, the longer, “meatier” items of the nineteenfifties would seem to make the task of the indexer somewhat easier, as there were fewer “items” to list: in actual fact, however, any indexer worth his salt becomes in the end only too aware that “meat” makes for greater detail hidden in the body of the text, and that for reasons of economy of space many minor references must simply be overlooked. One would suppose that indexing is strictly non-partisan and objective, but this invidious selection has involved choices: choices in favour, I hope, of the student of dialect and Yorkshire heritage, and disadvantaging only the more peripheral interests. And some choices have, for better or worse, fallen into the category of subjective and personal. And I couldn’t resist the urge to capture, in a tiny way, some of the flavour of what I read, by quoting, especially from the verses.
