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.

Description:

Collecting the work of linguists, psychologists, neuroscientists,
archaeologists, artificial intelligence researchers and philosophers this
volume presents a richly varied picture of the nature and function of
mental states. Starting from questions about the cognitive capacities of
the early hominin homo floresiensis, the essays proceed to the role
mental representations play in guiding the behaviour of simple organisms
and robots, thence to the question of which features of its environment the
human brain represents and the extent to which complex cognitive skills
such as language acquisition and comprehension are impaired when the brain
lacks certain important neural structures. Other papers explore topics
ranging from nativism to the presumed constancy of categorization across
signed and spoken languages, from the formal representation of metaphor,
actions and vague language to philosophical questions about conceptual
schemes and colours. Anyone interested in mental states will find much to
reward them in this fine volume.
