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: Analyzing Discourse: A Manual of Basic Concepts
Written By: Robert A Dooley
Stephen H. Levinsohn
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556711152
Description:

Analyzing Discourse is an introduction to discourse analysis for linguistic field workers. It is practical, addressing issues commonly confronted by field linguists. Rather than applying a rigid theory or surveying a variety of approaches, it provides a methodology that has been refined over years of use. The material follows a functional and cognitive approach that seems to be a good approximation of how discourse is actually produced and understood.

Since the aim of the manual is introductory rather than comprehensive, most chapters are relatively short, and the whole can be covered in fifteen classroom hours. References are provided for further reading on the topics discussed. The manual can be used individually or in group sessions, such as in a formal course or a linguistic seminar. In a group setting, concepts can be illustrated by examining further texts than those provided in the manual.

Stephen H. Levinsohn, Ph.D., worked with the Inga (uechuan) people of Colombia from 1968 to 1997 in linguistic research and translation. He is presently an International Linguistics Consultant with SIL International.

Robert A. Dooley, Ph.D., has worked with the Mbya Guarani of southern Brazil since 1975. He served as director of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session, from 1988 to 1993.
