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: Language Development and Education
Subtitle: Children with Varying Language Experiences
Written By: Paula Menyuk
Maria Estela Brisk
Description:

We now know much more about the process of language development in all
children, and also much more about variations in the process due to
multi-cultural and multi-linguistic backgrounds, and developmental
anomalies. The book describes both the remarkable changes in language
knowledge and use that occur from infancy through high school, and also the
differences in the process due to variations in experience. What has been
found to be good educational practice during each of these stages is
discussed, emphasising that among other things, good practice involves
awareness of, and planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.
