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: Temps et aspect en égyptien
Subtitle: Une approche sémantique
Written By: J. Winand
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=26070
Series Title: Probleme der Ägyptologie
Description:

This volume deals with the complex question of time and aspect in ancient
Egyptian. The first part presents an original theoretical model which
challenges some well-established facts in general linguistics. The
functioning of aspect is explained as a dialectic process between the
grammatical tenses, the actionality of events, the semantic roles of the
participants, and diverse lexical means. The second part examines the
expression of aspect in ancient Egyptian, with a diachronic presentation
from the beginning down to Late Egyptian. The third and last part is
devoted to the study of the temporal relation. The argumentation is
illustrated by more than 800 examples and numerous figures.
