About this book
Dane County Place-Names is an entertaining record of the heritage of Dane County, Wisconsin’s capital region, from its earliest days through the 1940s. This classic work by the late lexicographer Frederic G. Cassidy is back in print for new generations to enjoy. Cassidy applied his insightful eye to the origins and evolution of local names that reveal a colorful history: Whiskey Creek, Brag Hollow, Marxville, Pancake Valley, Halunkenburg, Skunk Hollow, and Tipple School. This edition features a new introduction by local historian Tracy Will and a foreword by Isthmus journalist David Medaris.

Australian Bird Names, A Complete Guide

Creator: Jeannie Gray, Ian Fraser | Science - 2013-05-15

However the first 'official' use ofit as first-choice name is in the Index ofAustralian Bird Names (CSIRO 1969). ... known in ornithological circles until 1969; Swan Goose, recorded by Morris (1898) but hard to find otherwise in print, so presumably mostly a folk name. ... 'Shelduck' is from the now obsolete English word sheld, meaning pied (the European species of Tadorna is primarily black and white).


About this book
Australian Bird Names is aimed at anyone with an interest in birds, words, or the history of Australian biology and bird-watching. It discusses common and scientific names of every Australian bird, to tease out the meanings, which may be useful, useless or downright misleading! The authors examine every species: its often many-and-varied common names, its full scientific name, with derivation, translation and a guide to pronunciation. Stories behind the name are included, as well as relevant aspects of biology, conservation and history. Original descriptions, translated by the authors, have been sourced for many species. As well as being a book about names this is a book about the history of ever-developing understandings of birds, about the people who contributed and, most of all, about the birds themselves.
