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: Idioms and Collocations
Subtitle: Corpus-based linguistic and lexicographic studies
Edited By: Christiane Fellbaum
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Series Title: Corpus and Discourse
Description:

This book demonstrates how corpus-based research can advance the
understanding of linguistic phenomena in a given language. By presenting a
detailed analysis of collocations and idioms in a digital corpus of English
and German, the contributors to this volume show how the use of
collocations and idioms has changed over time, and suggests possible
triggers for this change. The book not only examines what these
collocations and idioms are, but also what their purpose is within
languages. Idioms and Collocations is divided into three sections. The
first section discusses the construction, composition and annotation of the
corpus. Chapters in the second section describe the methods for querying
the corpus, the generation and maintenance of the example subcorpora, and
the linguistic-lexicographic analyses of the target idioms. Finally, the
third section presents the results of specific investigations into the
syntactic, semantic, and historical properties of collocations. This book
presents original work in corpus linguistics, computational linguistics,
theoretical linguistics and lexicography. It will be useful for researchers
in academic and industrial settings, and lexicographers.
