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.

Title: Lexico bilingue aparai-portugues / portugues-aparai
Written By: Eliane Camargo
URL: http://www.lincom-europa.com
Series Title: Languages of the World/Dictionaries 28
Description:

Como contribuicao a documentacao de linguas amazonicas, o presente lexico bilingue ilustra o aparai com aproximadamente 3600 entradas lexicais. As entradas lexicais sao, em sua maioria, exemplificadas com enunciados em lingua vernacular (aparai) tendo sua traducao em portugues, proporcionando ao leitor exemplos do emprego dos termos lexicais e/ou gramaticais na estrutura da lingua. Pertencente a familia linguistica caribe, o aparai e' falado por cerca de 500 pessoas, sendo que apenas a metade identifica-se como sendo aparai por linhagem patrilinear. Muitos falantes falam aparai por terem maes aparais, outros por usarem essa lingua como lingua de comunicacao (entre wayanas e tiriyos, por exemplo).

Atualmente, os aparais ocupam o alto e medio rio Paru de Leste, no extremo norte do estado do Para, no Brasil, territorio que dividem com wayanas e com tiriyes. Uma pequena porcao, que vivia na regiao do rio
Jari, vive hoje no alto rio Maroni, na Guiana Francesa, junto com wayanas. O aparai e' a lingua de alfabetizacao no rio Paru de Leste e bastante difundida nessa regiao, contrariamente no rio Maroni, onde o seu conhecimento esta em vias de desaparecimento.
