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: Style Shifting in Japanese
Edited By: Kimberly A. Jones
Tsuyoshi Ono
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20180
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 180
Description:

This innovative and interdisciplinary book on style shifting in Japanese
brings together a wide range of perspectives and methodologies - including
discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics, and functional
linguistics - to look at a variety of types of style shifting in both
spoken and written Japanese discourse. Though diverse in approach, the
contributions all reflect the belief that language use is inextricably
linked to both context and language structure in mutually constitutive
relationships. Topics covered include shifting between "polite" and "plain"
styles, the emergence of a "semi-polite" style, speakers' strategic use of
gendered styles or regional dialects, shifting between different deictic
expressions, and prosodic shifting. This careful and detailed examination
advances our understanding of the complex phenomenon of style shifting not
only in Japanese, but also more generally, and will be of interest to
researchers and students in fields such as linguistics, linguistic
anthropology, communication studies, and second language acquisition and
teaching.
