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: Endangered Languages: Current Issues and Future Prospects
Edited By: Lenore A. Grenoble
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521591023
Description:

The issue of language loss is currently the focus of much linguistic
research. This edited volume brings together work by theoretical linguists,
field linguists and nonlinguist members of minority communities to provide
an integrated view of how language is lost, from sociological and economic
as well as from linguistic perspectives. It maps out some of the strategies
applied by native communities and professional linguists in the face of
language endangerment. Several authors address the understudied issue of
what (beyond a linguistic system) is lost when a language becomes obsolescent.
