The Ancient Language, and the Dialect of Cornwall, with an Enlarged Glossary of Cornish Provincial Words

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: Philosophical Perspectives on Language
Written By: Robert J Stainton
Description:

A single-authored survey to the field of analytic philosophy of language. This very accessible, reader-friendly and largely jargon-free text is ideally suited as an adjunct text for students struggling to make sense of the typically rather difficult primary materials / articles covered in intermediate and upper-level Philosophy of Language courses, or those in related disciplines wanting an accessible and engaging introduction to the subject, with suggestions for further study (each chapter ends with a detailed Suggested Readings section). The text is distinctive in that it is informed by recent research in linguistics as well as in philosophy, and in that its discussion of various topics--syntax, speech acts, indexicals, metaphor--is organized around a unified theme: language as a system of symbols that is known and used.
