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: 'Subordination' versus 'Coordination' in Sentence and Text
Subtitle: A cross-linguistic perspective
Edited By: Cathrine Fabricius-Hansen
Wiebke Ramm
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%2098
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 98
Description:

The papers collected in this volume (including a comprehensive
introduction) investigate semantic and discourse-related aspects of
subordination and coordination, in particular the relationship between
subordination/coordination at the sentence level and
subordination/coordination - or hierarchical/non-hierarchical
organization - at the discourse level. The contributions in part I are
concerned with central theoretical questions; part II consists of
corpus-based cross-linguistic studies of clause combining and
discourse structure, involving at least two of the languages English,
German, Dutch, French and Norwegian; part III contains papers
addressing specific - predominantly semantic - topics relating to
German, English or French; and the papers in part IV approach the
topic of subordination, coordination and rhetorical relations from a
diachronic (Old Indic and Early Germanic) perspective. The book aims
to contribute to a better understanding of information packaging on
the sentence and text level related, within a particular language as
well as cross-linguistically.
