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: Power Without Domination
Subtitle: Dialogism and the empowering property of communication
Edited By: Eric Grillo
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2012
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 12
Description:

The volume provides a multidisciplinary approach of the discursive
dimension of power. It challenges the usual conception of discourse and
power that underlies most of the current theories in contemporary discourse
analysis, and shows that it is unsatisfying in so far as it reduces power
to domination and discourse to power technology. In opposition to such a
conception, an alternative model of power-in-discourse is constructed. It
is called "Dialogical Model" in accordance with its being grounded in a
dialogical conception of discourse that naturally leads to a participative
conception of power (as empowerment). Part One provides the DM with
theoretical and philosophical foundations, while Part Two affords empirical
evidence by applying the DM to such typical situations as journalistic
discourse under censorship, classroom sessions, and children interaction in
a problem-solving situation.
