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: El Significado
Subtitle: Una Introduccion a la Semantica
Written By: Fernando García Murga
Series Title: LINCOM Coursebooks in Linguistics 05

La Semántica es el campo que investiga el significado de las expresiones de cualquier lenguaje. El significado de una expresión depende del significado de las palabras y de la estructura sintáctica de esa expresión. Por su significado, las palabras se agrupan formando un amplio conjunto de relaciones de sentido, como 'sinonimia', 'oposición', etc. El significado oracional permite definir relaciones como 'entrañamiento', 'presuposición', etc. El concepto de significado ocupa un lugar clave en la definición de la Semántica y, sin embargo, no existe una definición explícita y rigurosa de la naturaleza del significado. De hecho, existe una amplia disputa filosófica sobre el significado, hasta tal punto que podemos hablar de una 'Semántica filosófica' que trata de clarificar la naturaleza del significado mediante conceptos semánticos como 'sentido', 'referencia', 'verdad', etc.
