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.

Subtitle: Theories of English
Written By: Siobhan Chapman
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403922020
Series Title: Perspectives on the English Language
Description:

Thinking About Language considers the ideas and theories underpinning
language study. It encourages students to begin thinking about ways of
seeing language and introduces past debates and current disputes on the way
that human language works. The book offers a balance between theory and
application and provides an interesting and accessible introduction to the
history of linguistic theory, the variety of different theoretical
approaches to language study and to the current state of the subject.


'The goal of this volume is to provide an introduction to a number of
conceptual and philosophical issues surrounding the nature and study of
language. The book is wonderfully clear and engaging, and deserves a place
in every undergraduate curriculum.' - Geoffrey Poole, School of English
Literature, Language and Linguistics, University of Newcastle, UK
