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: The Language of Memory in a Crosslinguistic Perspective
Edited By: Mengistu Amberber
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=HCP%2021
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 21
Description:

This book offers, for the first time, a detailed comparative study of how
speakers of different languages express memory concepts. While there is a
robust body of psycholinguistic research that bears on how memory and
language are related, there is no comparative study of how speakers
themselves conceptualize memory as reflected in their use of language to
talk about memory. This book addresses a key question: how do speakers of
different languages talk about the experience of having prior experiences
coming to mind ('remembering') or failing to come to mind ('forgetting')? A
complex array of answers is provided through detailed grammatical and
semantic investigation of different languages, including English, German,
Polish, Russian and also a number of non-Indo-European languages, Amharic,
Cree, Dalabon, Korean, and Mandarin. In addition, the book calls for a
broader interdisciplinary engagement by urging that cognitive semantics be
integrated with other sciences of memory.
