By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Title: Numbers, Language, and the Human Mind
Written By: Heike Wiese
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521831822
Description:

What constitutes our concept of numbers and makes it possible for us to
work with them the way we do? Which mental faculties contribute to our
grasp? What qualities do we share with other species, and which ones are
specific to us? This book addresses these questions to reveal that language
plays a crucial role in the development of systematic number concepts. It
analyzes the relationship between numerical thinking and the human language
faculty, providing psychological, linguistic, and philosophical
perspectives on numbers, their evolution, and development in children.
