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: The Sociolinguistics Reader Volume 1: Multilingualism and Variation
Edited By: Jenny Cheshire
Peter Trudgill
Description:

This two-volume text presents a state-of-the-art account of the discipline
in the closing years of the twentieth century. The books chart the
liveliest areas in contemporary sociolinguistics: variation,
multilingualism, gender, and discourse and include helpful introductions
and other aids to the student and specialist. Volume 1 explores the
macro-social aspects of sociolinguistics, covering cross-cultural
communication problems, the linguistic behavior of bilingual speakers,
language contact, the social psychology of language, variation, and the
mystery of linguistic change.
