To help with Jane Austen readings why not pick up a copy of this?

Jane Austen Dictionary
by Pauline E. Kelly

Description from the amazon:
When Jane Austen died in 1817, her legacy included six of the world's most beloved and enduring novels, yet much of the language that punctuates her work may puzzle some of today's readers. This delightful book not only provides definitions for words that have become obsolete, but it also explains how commonly recognizable words were used in very different ways. In addition, it provides an interesting look into the world of Regency England where Jane Austen's novels took place. Charmingly illustrated, and full of quotes, it is a must-have book for the casual reader, as well as the serious student of Ms. Austen, that is sure to be enjoyed and referred to innumberable times.
