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.

Title: Literacy, Lives and Learning
Written By: David Barton
Roz Ivanic
Yvon Appleby
Rachel Hodge
Series Title: Literacies
Description:

Demonstrating what it is like to be an adult learner in today’s world, this
book focuses on language, literacy and numeracy learning. The authors
explore the complex relationship between learning and adults’ lives,
following a wide range of individual students in various formal learning
situations, from college environments to a young homeless project, and a
drug support and aftercare centre.

The study is rooted in a social practices approach and examines how
people’s lives shape their learning. Themes addressed range from: how
literacy is learned through participation and how barriers such as violence
and ill-health impact on people’s lives. Based on a major research project
and detailed, reflexive and collaborative methodology, the book describes a
coherent strategy of communication and impact which will have a direct
effect on policy and practice.
