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: Genre, Relevance and Global Coherence
Subtitle: The Pragmatics of Discourse Type
Written By: Christoph Unger
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403985332
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
Description:

Genre, Relevance and Global Coherence seeks to explain how discourse types
or genre may influence the addressee's inferential processes in identifying
the communicator's intention. It examines global coherence-based accounts
as well as proposals based on Gricean pragmatics, arguing that the key to a
solution lies in the interplay of the cognitive and communicative
principles of relevance proposed by Sperber & Wilson. It unravels intricate
relations between cognitive mechanisms, communicative principles and
expectations of relevance in complex ostensive stimuli such as texts.
