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: Principles of the Relation between Local Adverb, Verb and Sentence Particle in Hittite
Written By: F.A. Tjerkstra
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=10011
Series Title: Cuneiform Monographs
Description:

This book deals with the function of the so-called 'local adverbs' in
Hittite, and the relation between their use and the occurrence of so-called
'sentence particles'. The local adverbs have traditionally been explained
as postpositions, preverbs or adverbs, depending on their position in the
sentence. In this book, the function of the local adverbs is described in
terms of their relation with the verb. Local adverbs belonging to the verb
form a semantic particle. Independent local adverbs have no relation with
the verb, but function as postpositions or independent adverbs. A new
lexical description of all Hittite verbs, in the absence of native
speakers, necessarily based on the study of all available 'predicate
frames', will be necessary to define the function of the Hittite local
adverbs in each of their attestations. In this book, the evidence of four
common Hittite 'verbs of motion' has been analysed as a specimen study. In
the last section the situation in a much better-known language, Homeric
Greek, where the same problems confront the researcher, is adduced for
comparison.
