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.

Title: “I Reckon I Know How Leonardo da Vinci Must Have Felt...”: Epistemicity, Evidentiality and English Verbs of Cognitive Attitude
Written By: Gloria Cappelli
URL: http://www.paripublishing.com/books/leonardo/
Description:

English verbs of cognitive attitude (e.g. know, think, believe, suppose,
guess, assume, doubt, etc.) are one of the means of giving voice to the
subject's epistemic-evidential stance. The interest aroused by these verbs
is not limited to their semantics: it also lies in their functions in
communication and, supposedly, in cognition.

The book investigates the semantic and pragmatic features of this class of
English verbs in the light of recent theories of dynamic meaning construal
and analyses the class as a good example of a complex dynamical system. The
individual verbs are seen as micro-systems embedded within the system and
occupying a rich semantic space in which epistemicity and evidentiality
interact in intricate ways.
