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.

Written By: J. Hoftijzer
K. Jongeling
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=21153
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

The North-West Semitic epigraphic contributes considerably to our
understanding of the Old Testament and of the Ugaritic texts and to our
knowledge of the North-West Semitic languages as such.
This dictionary is concerned with the North-West Semitic material found in
inscriptions, papyri and ostraca in Phoenician, Punic, Hebrew, various
forms of Aramaic, Ammonite, Edomite, the language of Deir Alla et cetera.
The material covers the period from ca. 1000 B.C. to ca. 300 A.D. Besides
translations the entries include discussions and full references to
scholarly literature.

The book is a translated, updated and considerably augmented edition of
Jean & Hoftijzer, 'Dictionnaire des inscriptions sémitiques de l'ouest'.
The additions concern newly found texts as well as references to new
scholarly literature. The book is an indispensable tool for research in
North-West Semitic epigraphy, on the Old Testament and on Ugaritic texts,
and for Semitic linguistics.
