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.

Title: The Sociolinguistics of Identity
Edited By: Tope Omoniyi
Goodith White
URL: www.continuumbooks.com/search/default.aspx?SearchTypeID=1&SearchText=sociolinguistics&Imprint
Description:

Identity is a problematic concept inasmuch as we recognise it now as
non-fixed, non-rigid and always being co-constructed by individuals of
themselves, or by people who share certain core values or perceive another
group as having such values. This volume re-examines the analytical tools
employed in the sociolinguistic research of 'identity' in order to assess
their efficiency, establish the roles of language in the identity claims of
specific communities of people, and determine the place of identity in a
variety of social contexts, including work places and language classrooms.
It will be of interest to academics researching sociolinguistics, applied
linguistics and second language learning.
