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: Focus on South Africa
Edited By: Vivian Anne de Klerk
Series Title: Varieties of English Around the World
Description:

This volume brings together a range of studies on various aspects of English and its use in Southern Africa. Experts in their field have written chapters on topics including the history and development of English in South Africa, the characteristics of particular pan-ethnic varieties of English which have evolved in South Africa (including black, Indian and colored varieties) as well as the unique features of the English of South Africa's southern neighbors: Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. Other contributions focus on English in relation to issues such as standardization, lexicography, education, language planning, language attitudes and interpersonal interaction patterns. The book will be of primary interest to students of linguistics and language, but should also be relevant to educationists, sociologists and historians.
