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: The Verbal Complex in Romance
Subtitle: A Case Study in Grammatical Interfaces
Written By: Paola Monachesi
URL: http://www.us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?queryField=title&query=The+Verbal+Complex+in+Romance&view=
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics, 9
Description:

This book explores the interface between syntax and the other components
of the grammar, in particular phonology, morphology, and argument
structure. The author proceeds through a consideration of case studies,
such as clitics and complex predicates (auxiliary and modal verbs) in
Romance, grounding theoretical analysis in constant exemplification. She
shows that a careful analysis of their properties can lead to a better
understanding of the interaction of the various components of the grammar.

The syntactic properties of clitics are considered in relation to their
phonological and morphological characteristic. The properties of auxiliary
verbs are analysed from the perspective of the interface between argument
structure and syntactic structure. Modal verbs are examined at the
interface between syntax and phonology. The analyses of clitics and
auxiliaries throw interesting new light on the link between Romanian and
Balkan/Slavic. This is a valuable contribution to the study of grammatical
interfaces and to Romance verbal typology and comparative linguistics.
