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.

This book deals with the historical development of the Albanian language

present form. The volume contains a detailed description of historical
phonetics and morphology of Albanian. The reader will also find important
data on the Albanian vocabulary in its historical development.
Together with the author's Albanian Etymological Dictionary, the present
