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.
The papers in this volume were selected from those presented at the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium held at Georgetown University in October 1999. We are delighted to be publishing selected proceedings from this annual conference. 10 of the papers in this book discuss phonology, phonetics, and historical linguistics. The other 15 papers focus on syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The volume offers an excellent snapshot of the research currently being done in Hispanic linguistics.
