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: Globalization and Language in the Spanish Speaking World
Subtitle: Macro and Micro Perspectives
Written By: Clare Mar-Molinero
Miranda Stewart
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=0230000185
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

This volume considers, at global and at local levels, the spread of Spanish
today and particularly its role in the face of processes of globalization.
Spanish is frequently the dominant language in this contact situation. But
how contested is its hegemony; and how far does contact with it threaten
other languages? How are these other, weaker, minoritized languages
prospering in a world where a few strong, global languages may be taking
over their linguistic domains?
