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: Voice and Inversion
Edited By: T. Givón
Description:

This collection aims first to establish a structure-independent, language-independent definition of pragmatic voice, and more specifically then a universal functional definition of 'inverse'. The grammar and pragmatic function of the four major voice constructions -- direct-acive, inverse, passive, antipassive -- are surveyed using narrative texts from 14 languages: Koyukon (Athabascan), Plains Cree, (Algonquian), Chepang (Tibeto-Burman), Squamish and Bella Coola (Salish), Sahaptin (Sahaptian), Kutenai (isolate), Suriinam Carib (Carib) Cebuano and Karao (Philippine).
