This website was the GonMad Cumbrian Dictionary.
Now, to celebrate its 15th year online, The GonMad Cumbrian Dictionary is being made available in print.

Online readers have been asking for a print edition for years, and now it is finally available - bigger and better.
The eBook edition contains everything in the print edition plus active Contents page and 'See also' links to make browsing even easier.
*The GonMad Cumbrian Dictionary was awarded the Yahoo! Internet Life 'Strange Site of the Day' in September 2001.
