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.
Leading grammar expert Michael Swan answers questions such as, What is grammar for? How does it relate to vocabulary? How does it change? How does it differ across other languages? This accessible and readable introduction uses very little technical jargon in offering a fresh, original look at the subject.
