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: Second Language Research
Subtitle: Methodology and Design
Written By: Alison Mackey
Susan M. Gass
Description:

Specifically targeted towards the needs of a second language research
audience, Second Language Research: Methodology and Design addresses basic
issues related to research design, providing step-by-step instructions for
how to carry out studies. This up-to-date text includes chapters that cover
identifying research problems and questions; selecting elicitation
measures; dealing with ethical issues related to data gathering; validity
and reliability in research; research in second and foreign language
classroom contexts; data description and coding; and data analysis. Also
included is a chapter on the much needed and rarely addressed topic of
writing up SLA research, with concrete suggestions about preparing for
publication. Principles of both qualitative and quantitative research are
discussed in the context of design issues. Throughout the book, examples
from applied linguistics, second language acquisition, and TESOL are
provided. Helpful discussion and data-based skill-building exercises at the
end of each chapter promote better understanding of the principles
discussed. A glossary outlines key terms in second language research.
Second Language Research: Methodology and Design is an ideal textbook for
introductory and advanced classes in second language research methods, as
well as classes in related areas, for example TESOL research methods.
