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: Arabic Literature of Africa, Volume 1 The Writings of Eastern Sudanic Africa to c. 1900
Edited By: J.O. Hunwick
R.S. O'Fahey
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=446
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East 13
Description:

Eventually to be completed in six volumes, Arabic Literature of
Africa
will provide a survey of Muslim authors writing in Arabic in
Saharan and sub-Saharan Africa and a bibliography of their works. Falling
within the tradition of the great works of Brockelmann and Sezgin, it will
form a basic reference tool for the study of Arabic writing in areas of the
African Islamic world that fall outside the parameters of these works.
While primarily a work of reference, it will also attempt to provide an
outline of the intellectual history of Muslim societies in the areas it
covers: the Nile valley, East Africa and the Horn of Africa, West Africa
and the western Sahara, from earliest times to the present. The first
volume covers Eastern Sudanic Africa (mainly the modern Sudan) until
approximately 1900. It comprises twelve chapters organised by theme or
period and aims to present as complete a coverage as the present state of
our knowledge will allow.
