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.

Book Information

   

Title: Exploring the Syntax-Semantics Interface
Written By: Robert D Van Valin
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521811791
Description:

While all languages can achieve the same basic communicative ends, they
each use different means to achieve them, particularly in the divergent
ways that syntax, semantics and pragmatics interact across languages.
Written within the framework of Role and Reference Grammar, which proposes
a set of rules to link semantic and syntactic relations to each other,
this book discusses in detail how structure, meaning, and communicative
function interact in human languages. Clearly written and comprehensive,
it will be welcomed by all those working on the interface between syntax,
semantics and pragmatics.
