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.

Book Information

   

Title: Talking Voices
Subtitle: Repetition, Dialogue, and Imagery in Conversational Discourse
Written By: Deborah Tannen
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics 26
Description:

Written in readable, vivid, non-technical prose, this book presents the
highly respected scholarly research that forms the foundation for Deborah
Tannen's best-selling books about the role of language in human
relationships. It provides a clear framework for understanding how ordinary
conversation works to create meaning and establish relationships. A
significant theoretical and methodological contribution to both linguistic
and literary analysis, it uses transcripts of tape-recorded conversation to
demonstrate that everyday conversation is made of features that are
associated with literary discourse: repetition, dialogue, and details that
create imagery. This second edition features a new introduction in which
the author shows the relationship between this groundbreaking work and the
research that has appeared since its original publication in 1989. In
particular, she shows its relevance to the contemporary topic
'intertextuality', and provides a useful summary of research on that topic.

'Pleasant to read and constantly stimulating - an excellent
introduction to the kind of analysis T[annen] does so well.'
-Ronald K. S. Macaulay, Language

'A very stimulating book, it makes one look with fresh eyes
on conversation and what it can tell us about linguistic structures in
general.'
-N. F. Blake, Lore and Language
