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: The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Syntax
Edited By: Guglielmo Cinque
Richard S. Kayne
Series Title: Oxford Handbooks
Description:

Comparison across formal languages is an essential part of formal
linguistics. The study of closely-related varieties has proven extremely
useful in comparing differences that might otherwise appear unrelated, and
has helped to identify the core principles of Universal Grammar. This
comprehensive handbook serves two functions. It will provide a general and
theoretical introduction to comparative syntax, its methodology, and its
relation to other domains of linguistic inquiry; and it will provide a
systematic selection of the best comparative work being done today on those
language groups and families where substantial progress has been achieved.
With top-notch editors and contributors from around the world, this volume
will be an essential resource for scholars and students in formal linguistics.
