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: Adpositions
Subtitle: Pragmatic, semantic and syntactic perspectives
Edited By: Dennis Kurzon
Silvia Adler
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2074
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 74
Description:

This book is a collection of articles which deal with adpositions in a
variety of languages and from a number of perspectives. Not only
does the book cover what is traditionally treated in studies from a
European and Semitic orientation prepositions, but it presents
studies on postpositions, too. The main languages dealt with in the
collection are English, French and Hebrew, but there are articles
devoted to other languages including Korean, Turkic languages,
Armenian, Russian and Ukrainian. Adpositions are treated by some
authors from a semantic perspective, by others as syntactic units, and
a third group of authors distinguishes adpositions from the point of
view of their pragmatic function. This work is of interest to students
and researchers in theoretical and applied linguistics, as well as to
those who have a special interest in any of the languages treated.
