Book Description
You think you’ve heard everything about Newfoundland and Labrador, but . . .

Have you had a meal of padre?

Have you ever seen a shalandi?

Have you heard of basket soup?

Would you find the term dry dough offensive?

You’ve tried figgy duff, but have you eaten cod sounds?

Work your tongue through conversational one-liners and much more! The Newfoundland Tongue By Nellie P. Strowbridge is a tribute to Newfoundland’s unique culture and way of life. It explores the province’s history and folklore, placing a particular emphasis on traditional language, speech, expressions, and dialect. Read, and experience Newfoundland’s Old English and Irish roots as they come to the fore!

She is the winner of provincial and national awards, and has been published nationally and internationally.

Strowbridge, a former columnist, editorial writer, and essayist, has been Writer in the Library, a mentor to young writers, and an adjudicator in the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts and Letters Awards. She has held school workshops and hosted Gabfest for International Women’s Day in Cobh, Ireland, where she was Writer-in-Residence.
