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.

Book Information

   

Title: African American English
Subtitle: A Linguistic Introduction
Written By: Lisa J. Green
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521814499
Description:

This authoritative introduction to African American English (AAE) is the
first textbook to look at the grammar as a whole. Clearly organised, it
describes patterns in the sentence structure, sound system, word formation
and word use in AAE. The book uses linguistic description and data from
conversation to explain that AAE is not a compilation of random deviations
from mainstream English but that it is a rule-governed system. The textbook
examines topics such as education, speech events in the secular and
religious world, and the use of language in literature and the media to
create black images. This much-needed book includes exercises to accompany
each chapter and will be essential reading for students in linguistics,
education, anthropology, African American studies and literature.
