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: Philosophical Languages in the Seventeenth Century: Dalgarno, Wilkins, Leibniz
Written By: Jaap Maat
Series Title: The New Synthese Historical Library 54
Description:

This book gives a clear and thorough description of three fascinating
linguistic projects that were carried out in the seventeenth century: the
philosophical languages of George Dalgarno (1661) and John Wilkins (1668),
as well as the work of Leibniz in this area. These projects combined
practical purposes, such as improving communication, with profound
theoretical insights concerning the representation of knowledge and the
nature of language. Rich in detail, this book provides all the material for
a proper understanding of the workings of these schemes, while illuminating
the intellectual context in which they took shape. It will be welcomed by
anyone interested in the history of linguistics and philosophy of language.
