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: The Presupposition and Discourse Functions of the Japanese Particle Mo
Written By: Sachiko Shudo
Series Title: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics
Description:

This work investigates the constraints on the usage of the
Japanese particle mo and its discourse functions. The author claims that the usage of mo is constrained by the relation between the proposition within the scope of the particle (the 'host proposition' hereafter) and the context, defining 'context' as a set of propositions that the speaker assumes to be shared by the hearer. The analysis shows that, for the host proposition F(x) where x is the constituent marked by mo, the context must include an antecedent proposition H(y) such that y is not x and that F(x) entails
H(x) such that H(x) is 'contextually relevant' to the context.
