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.

Designed for beginners, this best-selling textbook provides a thorough

edition has been extensively revised to include new sections on important
contemporary issues in language study, including language and culture,
African American English, sign language, and slang. A comprehensive

contains a range of new study questions and research tasks, with suggested
answers.
