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: Grammars of Colonialism
Subtitle: Representing Languages in Colonial South Africa
Written By: Rachael Gilmour
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403933812
Description:

The study of languages was crucial to the development and maintenance of
colonial power in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century South Africa. This
important book examines a wide range of representations of the South
African Bantu languages Xhosa and Zulu, in travel narratives, as well as
grammars, dictionaries and reading books, revealing the ways in which
colonial linguistics contributed to the making of the colonial order, but
also the instabilities at the heart of this project to 'make sense' of
South Africa.
