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: Writing in Action - A Resource Book for Writers
Written By: Paul Mills
URL: http://http://www.routledge.com/routledge.html
Description:

WRITING IN ACTION provides a step-by-step, practical guide to the process of writing. Although the emphasis is on creative writing such as fiction, poetry and drama, it also covers autobiographical writing and the writing of reports and essays. Because this is a book about process rather than product, WRITING IN ACTION also looks at the practice of adaptation and editing. It shows new writers how to get started, develops the confidence of more experienced writers, encourages experimentation and creativity, stimulates critical awareness through inclusion of illustrative texts and encourages writing as a skill as well as an art form. The book offers many practical suggestions and self-evaluation exercises, as well as invaluable tips on style, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary.
