For a long period, Rowland's was the standard Welsh grammar, and Sir John Morris-Jones, while noting its defects, was yet able to testify that it contained ‘ a great deal of sound knowledge … about modern Welsh... Rowland was also, for the last ten years of his life, ‘corrector’ of Welsh place-names for the Ordnance Survey maps" (Jenkins, 1959)
