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: English in Academia
Subtitle: Catalyst or Barrier?
Edited By: Claus Gnutzmann
URL: http://www.narr.de/isbn.php?isbn=978-3-8233-6341-5
Description:

In times of political and economic globalisation proficiency in the English
language has developed into a key competence. The supremacy of English has
also manifested itself in academic communication; research and teaching
across all disciplines are becoming more and more anglophone. Consequently,
academia and the English language as a medium of academic discourse are
faced with new challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, the spread of
English entails the risk of Anglo-American dominance in cultural and
scientific realms leading to disadvantages for non-native speakers of
English. On the other hand, English as a common lingua franca is able to
function as a catalyst for international coopera tion in research and
teaching. The articles in this bilingual (German/English) anthology focus
on discussing the advantages and disadvantages of an increasing anglophony
in academia.
