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: Perspectives in Linguistics
Subtitle: Papers in Honor of P. J. Mistry
Edited By: Ritva Laury
Gerald R. McMenamin
Shigeko Okamoto
Vida Samiian
Description:

The volume consists of papers offered as a tribute to Professor P. J.
Mistry by his former students and colleagues on the occasion of his
retirement from the Department of Linguistics at California State
University, Fresno. Reflecting the diversity of the scholars who have
benefited from Mistry's teaching, mentoring and friendship, a wide range of
sub-areas of both theoretical and applied linguistics are represented,
including syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics, historical
linguistics, discourse analysis, text linguistics, first and second
language acquisition, language pedagogy, history of linguistics, forensic
linguistics, conversation analysis, and typology. The range of languages
discussed in the papers is equally diverse both genetically and
typologically: they include Bantu, Bontok, Cham, Chumash, English, Finnish,
Gujarati, Japanese, Mandarin, Manipuri, Sanskrit, Panjabi, Rajasthani, and
Telugu. The volume also contains a biography of Mistry as well as articles
on his poetry and his contributions to Gujarati linguistics.
