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: Contributions to the Science of Text and Language
Subtitle: Word Length Studies and Related Issues
Edited By: Peter Grzybek
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-4069-6
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

This volume contains a collection of contributions to the science of
language, focusing on the study of word length in particular. Within a
synergetic framework, the word turns out to be a central linguistic unit,
as is clearly outlined in the Editors preface. The books first chapter is
an extensive introduction to the history and state of the art of word
length studies.

The studies included unify contributions from three important linguistic
fields, namely, linguistics and text analysis, mathematics and statistics,
and corpus and data base design, which together give a comprehensive
approach to the quantitative study of text and language and word length
studies.

The broad spectrum of word length studies covered within this volume will
be of interest to experts working in the fields of general linguistics,
text scholarship and related fields, and, understanding language as one
example of complex semiotic systems, the volume should be of interest for
scholars from other fields as well.
