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: Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian
Subtitle: Volume Three: m-
Written By: Gábor Takács
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=17458
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East, Vol 3
Description:

This is the third volume of the Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian.
It comprises the Egyptian words with initial m-. The amount of material
offered, the extensive treatment of scholarly discussions on each item, and
the insights into the connections of Egyptian and the related Afro-Asiatic
(Semito-Hamitic) languages, including many new lexical parallels, will make
it an indispensable tool for comparative purposes and an unchallenged
starting point for every linguist in the field.

The reader will find the etymological entries even more detailed than those
of the introductory volume, due to the full retrospective presentation of
all etymologies proposed since A. Erman's time, and thanks to an extremely
detailed discussion of all possible relevant data even on the less known
Afro-Asiatic cognates to the Egyptian roots.
