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: From Polysemy to Semantic Change
Subtitle: Towards a typology of lexical semantic associations
Edited By: Martine Vanhove
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20106
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 106
Description:

This book is the result of a joint project on lexical and semantic typology
which gathered together field linguists, semanticists, cognitivists,
typologists, and an NLP specialist. These cross-linguistic studies concern
semantic shifts at large, both synchronic and diachronic: the outcome of
polysemy, heterosemy, or semantic change at the lexical level. The first
part presents a comprehensive state of the art of a domain typologists have
long been reluctant to deal with. Part two focuses on theoretical and
methodological approaches: cognition, construction grammar, graph theory,
semantic maps, and data bases. These studies deal with universals and
variation across languages, illustrated with numerous examples from
different semantic domains and different languages. Part three is dedicated
to detailed empirical studies of a large sample of languages in a limited
set of semantic fields. It reveals possible universals of semantic
association, as well as areal and cultural tendencies.
