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.

Book Information

   

Title: Selected Writings of Sydney Lamb
Subtitle: Language and Reality
Written By: Sydney M. Lamb
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

This volume presents the selected writings of Professor Sydney M. Lamb,
including six new works and several which have been re-worked for
publication here. Although he is a leading figure in linguistic science,
many of the papers are far from well known, some of them having appeared in
more obscure venues of publication, and for the most part unavailable to
the wider linguistic community.

The book is divided into four parts, the first of which includes papers
offering insight into the man behind this pioneering approach to
linguistics that might best be summed up as "linguistics to the beat of a
different drummer." The papers in Part II explore the theoretical origins
of Lamb's ideas about language that have often been described as ahead of
their time. Part III includes more recent writings outlining work done in
Neurocognitive Linguistics. Studies of the interconnectedness of language
with other kinds of human experience and with history are presented in Part IV.
