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: Implicature
Subtitle: Intention, Convention, and Principle in the Failure of Gricean Theory
Written By: Wayne A. Davis
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/0521038065
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Philosophy
Description:

H. P. Grice's theory of implicature provides the leading paradigm for
research in pragmatics. Wayne Davis argues controversially that Gricean
theory does not work. In developing his argument the author explains that
the psycho-social principles actually define the social function of
implicature conventions, which contribute to the satisfaction of those
principles. By offering a searching and systematic critique of one of the
established doctrines in the philosophy of language, this challenging book
will be of particular importance to philosophers of language and linguists,
especially those working in pragmatics and sociolinguistics.
