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: Inflectional Morphology: A Theory of Paradigm Structure
Written By: Gregory T. Stump
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics, 93
Description:

A new contribution to linguistic theory, this book presents a formal
framework for the analysis of word structure in human language. It sets
forth the network of hypotheses constituting Paradigm Function Morphology,
a theory of inflectional form whose central insight is that paradigms play
an essential role in the definition of a language's system of word structure.

The theory comprises several unprecedented claims, chief among which is the
claim that a language's realization rules serve as clauses in the
definition of a paradigm function, an overarching construct which is
indispensable for capturing certain kinds of generalizations about
inflectional form. This book differs from other recent works on the same
subject in that it treats inflectional morphology as an autonomous system
of principles rather than as a subsystem of syntax or phonology and it
draws upon evidence from a diverse range of languages in motivating the
proposed conception of word structure.
