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: Meaning Change in Grammaticalization
Subtitle: An Enquiry into Semantic Reanalysis
Written By: Regine Eckardt
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199262601
Description:

This book explores the key mechanisms underlying semantic change. Meaning
changes work, the author shows, through modes of reanalysis undertaken by
speakers and listeners, and are particularly evident in processes of
grammaticalization in which lexical items lose autonomous meaning. Regine
Eckardt's approach is derived from formal semantic theory and developed in
the context of several in-depth case studies. Her book will interest
scholars and advanced students of historical and comparative linguistics
and formal semantics.
