Decription
Words and Phrases, first published over seventy year ago, in its original from an anthology of judicial definitions. These comprised extracts from made and judgments given int he House of Lords, the Judicial Committee of Privacy Council, and the various Divisions of the High Court and the Court of Appeal, and also in the superior courts of Australia, Canada and New Zealand,. Save for occasional explanatory notes, every extract was reproduced in the words in which it was originally reported. The second edition, published twenty years later, still remained largely a collection of judicial definitions. Its scope was broadened by the addition, to the UK material, of selections of statutory definitions and extracts from textbooks, notably the third edition of Halsbury's Law of England. In addition, the material was regrouped so that it was possible to simplify the headings, which were limited to a single word or a short phrase of two or three words. This, in conjunction with the use of sub-headings, meant that it was possible in most cases together groups of definitions which, under the former strictly alphabetical arrangement of phrases, would have fallen on different pages or even in different volumes. Such phrases as Private nuisance, Public nuisance, Statutory nuisance and Nuisance to the highway now fell logically under the main headings Nuisance. Nearly twenty years after the third edition, the fourth edition was published, incorporating substantial changes and adopting a convenient two-volume format. In the eleven years since then, many entries have accumulated int he annual supplements, from the UK and from Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The law never stands still: some definitions cease to be relevant, while new terms continue to be defined and interpreted. A new edition was therefore felt to be timely. The present, fifth, edition incorporates the material from the cumulative supplements plus fresh definitions from statute and case law. Material no longer relevant has been removed, and the references to Halsbury's Laws of England have been updated to refer to the fifth edition. It should be noted that a meaning which a number of expressions in common use are to bear when used in a United Kingdom statue, unless a contrary intention appears, are defined by the Interpretation Act 1978.
