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.
The study analyses the linguistic means for expressing pain in German. Based on written and oral data, mainly from conversations between doctors and patients, the study analyses the grammatical constructions (e.g. "Ich habe Schmerzen" [I have pain] or "Mein Bein tut weh" [My leg hurts]) and develops the patterns deployed by patients with chronic pain to describe their pain in discourse. This interdisciplinary study is directed towards linguists, medics and non-experts with an interest in language; it combines methods from grammar, semantics and conversational analysis, and its results are read in the context of medical literature.
