2 TABLE OF CONTENTS RURAL ABC'S "Rural ABC's" Word Search Rural ABC's Answer Key RURAL ABC'S Many of the words and phrases in this section were inspired by Shelburne author and historian Marion Robertson's wonderful collection of Shelburne County folklore entitled The Chestnut Pipe.(6) At the time of printing, Mrs. Robertson resides at the Roseway Manor in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. After a writing career that spanned more than 50 years and produced hundreds of historical essays, as well as seven books, she is no longer able to write. Mrs. Robertson's work, however, still forms the basis of most historical information available on Shelburne County and its history. Marion Robertson has won numerous awards over the years, perhaps the most prestigious being the Order of Canada, presented by the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia in Marion Robertson, The Chestnut Pipe Halifax: Nimbus Publishing, 1991)

10 RURAL ABC'S ANSWER KEY > Many of the words in this section have origins that date back hundreds of years, and it is interesting to learn how many of these old words are still in use today. Even if the words are old-fashioned or no longer used, it is still useful to learn to recognize them and know their definitions, especially since some of them cannot be found in a dictionary. We have attempted to provide as many local examples as possible, without employing and thereby encouraging the use of slang. Some words should also demonstrate how two words can sound the same but look different and have different meanings. The words and phrases collected under each letter of the alphabet will assist the learner in recognizing common (or unusual) words on sight. These may be entered in the learner's personal dictionary, and they may spark a discussion as to their meaning, which is provided in the case of a particularly interesting word or phrase. They also can be used to form sentences, which will demonstrate the learner's understanding of their meanings.
