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: Argument Encoding in Japanese Conversation
Written By: Mitsuaki Shimojo
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403937052
Description:

Japanese is well known for its array of argument encoding types - but how
is speakers' choice of encoding types to be described? This book
investigates the encoding of subject and direct object in conversational
Japanese and attempts to explain Japanese argument encoding as a unified
system. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of a bank of conversation are
provided, with the emphasis on speakers' use of the encoding types rather
than their acceptability for given arguments.
