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: How Children Learn Language
Written By: William O'Grady
Edited By: Jean Aitchison
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521824941
Series Title: Cambridge Approaches to Linguistics
Description:

Adults tend to take language for granted - until they have to learn a new
one. Then they realize how difficult it is to get the pronunciation right,
to acquire the meaning of thousands of new words, and to learn how those
words are put together to form sentences. Children, however, have mastered
language before they can tie their shoes. In this engaging and accessible
book, William O'Grady explains how this happens, discussing how children
learn to produce and distinguish among sounds, their acquisition of words
and meanings, and their mastery of the rules for building sentences. How
Children Learn Language provides readers with a highly readable overview
not only of the language acquisition process itself, but also of the
ingenious experiments and techniques that researchers use to investigate
his mysterious phenomenon. It will be of great interest to anyone - parent
or student - wishing to find out how children acquire language.
