A New Glossary of the Dialect of the Huddersfield District is a 1928 reference book of the dialect of Huddersfield. J.R.R. Tolkien contributed with a six page Foreword (pp. xiii-xviii).[2]

In his preface, Haigh thanks Tolkien: "In the first place, I would sincerely thank Professor J.R.R. Tolkien, formerly Professor in Leeds University, now Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. Not only has he almost from the first shown his warm approval of the work, and befriended me with ever-ready advice and encouragement throughout, but he has also generously contributed a valuable Foreword to the Glossary."[2]
