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: A Systemic Functional Grammar of Japanese
Written By: Kazuhiro Teruya
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

This two-volume set is the first to provide a systemic functional
interpretation of the grammar of Japanese, describing it as a resource for
making meaning rather than as a set of formal rules. It offers a general
overview of all the major systems of Japanese grammar, with volume one
covering textual functions, and volume two examining the ideational and
interpersonal. The account of the grammar of Japanese is based on extensive
corpus material and throughout the book the account is shown at work in
Japanese discourse analysis. In addition to the general aim of presenting
an account of the grammar of Japanese as a resource for making meaning, the
set is also intended to extend our understanding of the semiotic potential
of Japanese, and of language in general, for making meanings, taking into
account both grammatical and lexical resources and linking them in a
unified description of the lexicogrammar of Japanese. This contribution
relates directly to current interest in the construction of knowledge, both
as a cognitive phenomenon and as a discursive one, and in the modelling of
language-based human intelligence.
