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.

Book Information

   

Title: Language in Australia
Written By: Suzanne Romaine
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521339834
Description:

Language in Australia provides a wide-ranging account of the present
linguistic situation in Australia, primarily from a sociolinguistic
perspective. The focus is mainly descriptive, and the chapters aim to
provide a comprehensive overview and summary of what is known about
Australia's languages as well as a guide to current areas of research
interest. Throughout the volume, the contributors pay special attention to
issues arising from the socio-historical situation in which Australia's
languages and language varieties coexist. The volume covers both indigenous
and non-indigenous languages, and contains a section specifically on
'community' languages, and also one on public policy and social issues
relating to English. No other book offers such a broad survey of the
language situation in Australia. Linguists as well as non-linguists will
find in this volume, which is a companion to Language in the USA and
Language in the British Isles, a guide and reference source to the rich
linguistic heritage of Australia.
