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 Collected Works of Bronislaw Pilsudski Vol.3
Subtitle: Materials for the Study of the Ainu Language and Folklore (Part Two)
Edited By: Alfred F. Majewicz
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/ed_e.cfm?rc=16731
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Documentation 15/3
Description:

Volume 1, The Aborigines of Sakhalin, contains translations into English of
the Polish, Russian and Japanese material on, for example, the history,
folklore, economic life, shamanism, sexual life, medical anthropology, and
the bear festival which has been published between 1898 and 1936, mainly in
local journals which are hardly accessible today. English, French and
German articles appear in the original language.

Volume 2, Materials for the Study of Ainu Language and Folklore, contains a
reprint of the classic 1912 Cracow edition with an Ainu-English index with
indication of frequency and occurrence, a reverse index, an English index,
and a grammatical index.

Volume 3 is devoted exclusively to B. Pilsudski´s Ainu-related materials,
for their most part previously unpublished. In addition, it comprises
Pilsudski´s research reports on his expeditions, a superb collection of
fifty prayers in Ainu as well as texts and melodies recovered from
Pilsudski´s famous wax-cylinder recordings of Ainu-folklore of 1902-1903.
The bibliographies printed in volume 1 are extensively enhanced. Abundant
illustrative material is included.

Key Features:
* unique linguistic and ethnographic data: a large portion of the material
in Volume 3 has never been published before
* an excellent resource for the study of the language and life of the
aboriginal, but now extinct, peoples of Sakhalin and Hokaido (Japan)

Alfred F. Majewicz is Professor at Adam Mikiewicz University, Poznan, Poland.
