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: Discourse Markers in Native and Non-native English Discourse
Written By: Simone Müller
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20138
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 138
Description:

While discourse markers have been examined in some detail, little is known
about their usage by non-native speakers. This book provides valuable
insights into the functions of four discourse markers (so, well, you know
and like) in native and non-native English discourse, adding to both
discourse marker literature and to studies in the pragmatics of learner
language. It presents a thorough analysis on the basis of a substantial
parallel corpus of spoken language. In this corpus, American students who
are native speakers of English and German non-native speakers of English
retell and discuss a silent movie. Each of the main chapters of the book is
dedicated to one discourse marker, giving a detailed analysis of the
functions this discourse marker fulfills in the corpus and a quantitative
comparison between the two speaker groups. The book also develops a
two-level model of discourse marker functions comprising a textual and an
interactional level.
