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: Experiential Constructions in Yucatec Maya
Subtitle: A typologically based analysis of a functional domain in a Mayan language
Written By: Elisabeth Verhoeven
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%2087
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 87
Description:

This book combines a fieldwork-based language-specific analysis with a
typological investigation. It offers a detailed and comprehensive analysis
of the form and semantics of experiencer constructions in Yucatec, the
Mayan language of the Yucatecan peninsula in Mexico. Since the linguistic
expression of experience is not restricted to a specific grammatical area
the study touches a great variety of grammatical fields in the language
such as argument structure, grammatical relations, possessive
constructions, subordinate constructions, etc. The empirical analysis of
the Yucatec data is preceded by a thorough examination of the functional
domain and the cross-linguistic coding of experience which until now could
not be found in the literature. This study will be of interest to scholars
working in the fields of typology and Native American linguistics, and
especially to those interested in argument structure and the
syntax-semantics interface.
