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: Language and Sexism
Written By: Sara Mills
Description:

The issue of sexist language has been hotly debated within feminist circles
since the 1960s. Previous books have tended to regard sexism in language as
easy to identify and have suggested solutions to overcome and counter
sexism. Sara Mills takes a fresh and more critical look at sexism in
language, and argues that even in feminist circles it has become a
problematic concept. Drawing on conversational and textual data collected
over the last ten years, and with reference to recent research carried out
in a range of different academic disciplines, Mills suggests that there are
two forms of sexism - overt and indirect. Overt sexism is clear and
unambiguous, while indirect sexism is based on pragmatics and the meaning
and interpretation of utterances. Indirect sexism is extremely common and
we therefore need new ways to challenge and analyse its usage in language.
