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: Women, Gender and Language in Morocco
Written By: Fatima Sadiqi
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=22347
Series Title: Women and Gender: The Middle East and the Islamic World
Description:

This volume deals with the complex but poorly understood relationship
between women, gender, and language in Morocco, a Muslim, multilingual,
multicultural, and developing country. The hypothesis on which the book is
based is that an understanding of gender perception and women's agency can
be achieved only by taking into account the structure of power in a
specific culture and that language is an important component of this power.
In Moroccan culture, history, geography, Islam, orality, multilingualism,
social organization, economic status, and political system constitute the
superstructures of power within which factors such as social differences,
contextual differences, and identity differences interact in the daily
linguistic performances of gender. Moroccan women are far from constituting
a homogeneous group; consequently the choices available to them vary in
nature and empowering capacity, thus 'widening' the spectrum of gender
beyond cultural limits.
