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: Developing Professional-level Language Proficiency
Edited By: Betty Lou Leaver
Boris Shekhtman
Description:

This book examines approaches to teaching students who aim to make the leap
from "advanced" or "superior" proficiency in a foreign language to
"near-native" ability. While there are an abundance of publications on
classroom techniques and methods for lower levels of instruction, almost
nothing exists about the transition, which is vital for those who intend to
use foreign languages in high-level arenas. Compiled by leading
practitioners in this area of foreign language teaching, the book fills the
gap for those developing programs at the "advanced to distinguished" level.
