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: Marking Past Tense in Second Language Acquisition
Subtitle: A Theoretical Model
Written By: Maximo Rafael Salaberry
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

‘Marking Past Tense in Second Language Acquisition’ presents an analysis of
the difficulties faced by native speakers of English in the learning of
Romance languages and in so doing proposes a comprehensive model of the
acquisition of tense-aspect marking. While L1 speakers of English may
quickly learn to identify and, to some extent, use the Spanish perfective
and imperfective verb endings, the L2 representation of tense-aspect
distinctions among both beginning and advanced learners requires a
comprehensive multidimensional analysis. Through a detailed examination of
new and existing empirical data, this monograph proposes a new model for
examining tense-aspect marking in second language acquisition, which
reconciles competing, alternative hypotheses.

This comprehensive account will be of interest to academics researching
second language acquisition and applied linguistics.

"This ambitious volume systematically and thoroughly examines the
theoretical and applied issues that the study of Spanish past tense raises.
It does so by questioning and refining well-known (but not always
well-understood) theoretical constructs upon which second language
acquisition studies are based."
-Professor Dalila Ayoun, University of Arizona, USA
