John Sampson (1862 – 1931) was an Irish linguist. As a scholar he is best known for The Dialect of the Gypsies of Wales (1926), an authoritative grammar of the Welsh-Romany language. It was written with the collaboration of Edward Wood, who died in 1902. Sampson edited a collection the poetry of William Blake, Blake's "Poetical Works", that restored the text from original works and annotated the published variants; Alfred Kazin described this as "the first accurate and completely trustworthy edition'.
