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: Pragmatic Impairment
Written By: Michael R. Perkins
Description:

Pragmatics - the way we communicate using more than just language - is
particularly problematic for people with speech disorders. Through an
extensive analysis of how pragmatics can go wrong, this book not only
provides a novel and clinically useful account of pragmatic impairment, but
it also throws new light on how pragmatics functions in healthy
individuals. Michael Perkins brings mainstream and clinical pragmatics
together by showing that not only can our understanding of pragmatics be
aided by the study of pragmatic impairment, but that clinical and
theoretical pragmatics are better served by treating pragmatic ability and
disability within a single framework. It is the first book on this topic to
be aimed primarily at linguists and psycholinguists rather than clinicians,
and includes illustrative material on conditions such as autism and aphasia
and a wide range of other communication disorders in both children and adults.
