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.

Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities
Description:

Maintaining Minority Languages in Transnational Contexts offers insights
into the complexities of language planning and policy, and highlights
Australian and European - and EU - approaches to the management of
multilingualism. These approaches include dealing with indigenous and
migrant ethnolinguistic minorities, critical examination of educational policies
for the provision of community languages in mainstream schooling,
educational initiatives for the linguistic integration of minority language
speakers and community efforts to maintain and/or revitalise minority
languages. The chapters offer insights into country-specific policies in
Australia, Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland,
Spain and Sweden, and engage in comparative discussions, either between
countries within Europe or between Australia and Europe.
