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: Germanic Language Histories 'from Below' (1700-2000)
Edited By: Stephan Elspaß
Nils Langer
Joachim Scharloth
Wim Vandenbussche
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-9783110193350-1&l=E
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 86
Description:

Focusing on the sociolinguistic history of Germanic languages, the current
volume challenges the traditional teleological approach of language
historiography. The 30 contributions present alternative histories of ten
"big" as well as "small" Germanic languages and varieties in the last 300
years. Topics covered in this book include language variation and change
and the politics of language contact and choice, seen against the
background of standardization processes of written and oral text genres and
from the viewpoint of larger sections of the population.
