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: Child Language
Subtitle: A resource book for students

Description:

Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study
and are one-stop resources for students. Assuming no prior knowledge,

Each topic can be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build
gradually on the knowledge gained.

MacWhinney, Richard Cromer, Jean Aitchison and Eve Clark.
