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: Language Policy, Culture, and Identity in Asian Contexts
Edited By: Amy B.M. Tsui
James W. Tollefson
Description:

Bringing together scholarship on issues relating to language, culture, and
identity, with a special focus on Asian countries, this volume makes an
important contribution in terms of analyzing and demonstrating how language
is closely linked with crucial social, political, and economic forces,
particularly the tensions between the demands of globalization and local
identity. A particular feature is the inclusion of countries that have been
under-represented in the research literature, such as Nepal, Bangladesh,
Brunei Darussalam, Pakistan, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Korea.

"Language Policy, Culture, and Identity in Asian Contexts" will interest
scholars and research students in the areas of language policy, education,
sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, and critical linguistics. It can be
adopted in graduate and advanced undergraduate courses on language policy,
language in society, and language education.
