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: Tajik
Written By: Shinji Ido
Series Title: Languages of the World/Materials 442
Description:

Tajik is a South-West Iranian language that is genetically closely related
to such major languages as Persian and Dari. Most Tajik speakers are in
Tajikistan and Uzbekistan; within Uzbekistan, Samarqand and Bukhara are
particularly densely populated by Tajik speakers. In the beginning of the
twentieth century, Tajik was considered by a number of writers and
researchers to be a variety of Persian. The language that this book
describes is the modern Tajik language which is referred to in the Soviet
linguistic literature typically as zaboni khozirai tojik. The morphological
segmentability of Tajik words is markedly high compared to words in the
Indo-Iranian predecessors of Tajik, which makes Tajik morphologically more
agglutinative than inflectional. Outstanding features of Tajik include the
modal opposition between the indicative mood and the mood of indirect
evidence, i.e. the inferential mood, that pervades the verbal system, and
the utilization of both post-nominal and pre-nominal relative clauses.
