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: The Syriac Language of the Peshitta and Old Syriac Versions of Matthew
Subtitle: Syntactic Structure, Inner-Syriac Developments and Translation Technique
Written By: Jan Joosten
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=2901
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

The aim of the present work is to make a contribution to the understanding
of the inner workings of the Syriac language through a study of one
important corpus written in that language.

The book contains four chapters on aspects of Syriac syntax. In addition, a
chapter on inner-Syriac developments — traceable owing to the fact that the
Gospel of Matthew was translated several times and at different dates — and
a chapter on the process of translation from Greek into Syriac are included
as well.

The analysis of the language of the Syriac versions of Matthew facilitates
the use of these versions in textual criticism of the New Testament.
Moreover, close study of these texts allows some light to be shed on the
history of the text of the Gospel.
