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: Creating and Digitizing Language Corpora Volume 2

Description:

A range of electronic corpora has become increasingly accessible via the
WWW and CD-ROM. This development coincided with improvements in the
standards governing the collecting, encoding and archiving of such data.
Less attention, however, has been paid to making other types of digital
data available - especially that which one might describe as
'unconventional', namely, the fragmentary texts and voices left to us as
accidents of history. Advances in technology have enabled the collection
and organisation of such data sets into a growing number of user-friendly
electronic corpora. The latter have the potential to offer new insights
into linguistic universals, for instance, since they allow, for the first
time, rapid and systematic comparisons across genres as well as social,
temporal and geographical space. This book provides state-of-the-art
methods and guidelines for creating and digitising these resources taking
full advantage of the dramatic recent improvements in computing and
analytical tools.
