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: Explorations in Integrational Linguistics
Subtitle: Four essays on German, French, and Guaran
Edited By: Robin Sackmann
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20285
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 285
Description:

Integrational Linguistics (IL), developed by the German linguist
Hans-Heinrich Lieb and others, is an approach to linguistics that
integrates linguistic descriptions, construed as declarative theories, with
a detailed theory of language that covers all classical areas of
linguistics, from phonology to sentence semantics, and takes linguistic
variation, both synchronic and diachronic, fully into account. The aim of
this book is to demonstrate how some controversial issues in language
description are resolved in Integrational Linguistics. The four essays
united here cover nearly all levels of language systems: phonetics and
phonology (The Case for Two-Level Phonology by Hans-Heinrich Lieb, on
German obstruent tensing and French nasal alternation), morphology (Form
and Function of Verbal Ablaut in Contemporary Standard German by Bernd
Wiese), morphology and syntax (Inflectional Units and Their Effects by
Sebastian Drude, on the person system in Guaran), and syntax and sentence
semantics (Topic Integration by Andreas Nolda, on split topicalization in
German).
