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: The Discourse Potential of Underspecified Structures
Edited By: Anita Steube
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110205732-1
Series Title: Language, Context and Cognition 8
Description:

The volume demonstrates the interdependence of man’s language capacity and
his other conceptual capacities. This enables linguistic structures to be
minimalised, and for extra-linguistic domains to provide much of the
interpretations of sound and meaning. Underspecification is demonstrated in
the word formation of Indo-European, Late Archaic Chinese and modern Khmer;
on the word- and sentence levels by the event structures of German; and in
the information structure predominantly of languages with the so-called
free word order: German, Slavic languages, Arabic compared with English and
the tone language Hausa.

The volume is noteworthy due to the close cooperation between theoretical
and experimental research. Within grammar, it has especially strengthened
prosodic research and the syntax-phonology interrelations and their
interpretations, and it has helped to create data bases for the relations
within texts and to evaluate the findings.
