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: Etymological Dictionary of the Iranian Verb
Written By: Johnny Cheung
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=24857
Series Title: Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary Series
Description:

The Iranian group within the Indo-European language family consists of
languages that were and are still spoken in Western and Central Asia, among
which Persian, Balochi, Kurdish, Pashto, Shughni and Ossetic are the best
known today and Avestan, Old and Middle Persian, Parthian, Bactrian,
Khotanese, Sogdian and Choresmian in the past. This work aims to bridge the
apparent gap in knowledge that exists between Indo-Europeanists and
scholars of Iranian languages with regard to each other's fields.

The present work gives a critical survey of all the verbs that may have
existed in Proto-Iranian as deduced from the attested Iranian descendants
and their archaic sister language, Sanskrit. This is accompanied by an
analysis of the morphology and assessment of the provenance.

Readership: Researchers and scholars in the field of Indo-European and
(Indo-)Iranian Historical Linguistics

Keywords: historical linguistics, Iran, Indo-Iranian, Indo-European
