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.

Title: Handbook of Amazonian Languages Volume 4
Edited By: † Desmond C Derbyshire
Geoffrey K Pullum
Description:

This volume includes grammatical descriptions of Wai Wai, Warekena, a comparative survey of morphosyntactic features of the Tupi-Guarani languages, and a paper on interclausal reference phenomena in Amahuaca. The four volumes of this handbook are devoted to studies of syntactic, morphological and phonological characteristics of the languages of Amazonia, many of which have never been described fully in the available literature, and most of which are little known to the general linguistic community.
