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: French
Subtitle: A Linguistic Introduction
Written By: Zsuzsanna Fagyal
Douglas A. Kibbee
Frederic Jenkins
Description:

French is used on every continent, spoken not only in France but also in
Belgium, Switzerland, North America, the Caribbean, Polynesia and Africa.
This is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the structure of French,
suitable for those with little prior knowledge of linguistics or of the
French Language. It clearly introduces the language's history, phonetics
(pronunciation), phonology (sound system), morpho-syntax (how words and
sentences are formed), pragmatics (how speakers express meaning), and
lexicology (the study of word composition and derivation) - with each
chapter showing how these aspects are subject to regional and social
variation. English translations are provided for all examples, and the book
contains an extensive bilingual glossary of linguistic terms, and numerous
exercises and essay questions in every chapter. French: A Linguistic
Introduction will be welcomed by advanced language learners, and by
linguists studying the structure of this important language.
