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: Receptive Multilingualism
Subtitle: Linguistic analyses, language policies and didactic concepts
Edited By: Jan D. ten Thije
Ludger Zeevaert
Series Title: Hamburg Studies on Multilingualism 6
Description:

Receptive multilingualism refers to the language constellation in which
interlocutors use their respective mother tongue while speaking to each
other. Since the mid-nineties receptive multilingualism is promoted by the
European commission on par with other possibilities of increasing the
mobility of the European citizens. Throughout the last ten years a marked
increase in the research on this topic has been observable. This volume
reveals new perspectives from different theoretical frameworks on
linguistic analyses of receptive multilingualism in Europe. Case studies
are presented from contemporary settings, along with analyses of historical
examples, theoretical considerations and, finally, descriptions of
didactical concepts established in order to transfer and disseminate
receptive multilingual competence. The book contains results from research
carried out at the Research Center on Multilingualism at the University of
Hamburg as well as contributions by various international scholars working
in the field of receptive multilingualism.
