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.

examples, the book describes and compares a wide range of basic and current
issues and facts that are of utmost relevance for all persons working on

core instruments needed and used in the study of phonology and phonological
analyses. It discusses modern phonological theories. Phonological issues
and processes, such as vowel harmony, assimilation, dissimilation,
lenition, as well as fortition are explained. Prosodic topics, such as
tone, stress, pitch, and intonation are considered. Issues in tonology
include tonological analysis, tonal behaviour and rules. Special attention
is given to specific sounds found in African languages.
