Mackem Dictionary returns

A Love Supreme and Sunderland AFC are delighted to announce that volume three of the Mackem Dictionary is now on sale!

The best-selling book, which celebrates the wonderful words of Wearside, is a firm-favourite in the city, and after selling our it’s first two editions, it returns for a third run bigger and better than ever.

Vol.3 includes all your favourite phrases while also including new ones, with over 50 additional entries included.

As with the previous two editions, proceeds will continue to go to local charities, with one hundred percent of the author’s royalties going to the club’s official charity partner, Foundation of Light.

Ahead of the launch, author Paul Swinney said: “Despite already outselling JK Rowling in the local Waterstones, it’s become clear recently on social media that there’s still great demand for the dictionary.

“Since the second edition went out of print last Christmas, we’ve been inundated by requests of where to buy it, and through running a Mackem ‘Word of the Day’ series on social media, we’ve also been able to work on new words thanks to suggestions from fans, so we’re able to bring it back bigger and better than ever.

It’s great to be giving the proceeds to charity again too – the book is about celebrating our dialect and culture, but I also want it to be able to give something back by helping to tackle the challenges that our city and wider region faces.

Paul Dobson, of Sunderland-based publisher, A Love Supreme, added: “The Mackem Dictionary is a special project for us – it’s been picked up all over the world and won so many awards and put – so we’re delighted to fund another print run.

“We’ve been publishing Sunderland-based literature for over 30 years, but the dictionary is one of our proudest achievements.”

Hayley Metcalfe, manager of Waterstones Sunderland, added: “It’s our best-selling book ever and we’ve had so many customers asking us if we have any copies of the dictionary, but we’ve had to send them away disappointed.

“So, it’s great that the third edition is now hitting our shelves, and with the additional pages, we look forward to it being an even bigger success than the first two editions.”

Foundation of Light’s Jamie Wright concluded: “Thank you to the publishers and to anyone that buys the dictionary for supporting our work improving educational achievement across Wearside, County Durham and South Tyneside.”

The Mackem Dictionary is available now for just £5 from A Love Supreme and Waterstones Sunderland or can be purchased online at www.a-love-supreme.com.
