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.

Written By: Noam Chomsky
Edited By: Adriana Belletti
Luigi Rizzi
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521815487
Description:

In On Nature and Language Noam Chomsky develops his thinking on the
relation between language, mind, and brain, integrating current research in
linguistics into the burgeoning field of neuroscience. Following a lucid
introduction is a penetrating interview with Chomsky, in which he provides
the clearest and most elegant introduction to current theory available. It
makes his Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with
an essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government. A
significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory, On Nature and
Language will be welcomed by students and researchers in theoretical
linguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive science and politics, as well as
anyone interested in the development of Chomsky's thought.

Noam Chomsky is Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. Chomsky has written and lectured extensively on philosophy,
intellectual history, and international affairs. His works include The
Architecture of Language, Aspects of the Theory of Syntax; Cartesian
Linguistics; Language and Mind; American Power and the New Mandarins; At
War with Asia; For Reasons of State; Peace in the Middle East? Reflections
on Language; Rules and Representations; The Culture of Terrorism;
Rethinking Camelot; JFKm the Vietnam War and US Political Culture; World
Orders, Old and New and The Common Good. "Chomsky's writing is more
powerful than Orwell's, and his documentation more compelling and
up-to-date. This book is important for those interested in Chomsky's
linguistic and political writings and, especially, the link between them.
Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." Choice :"...an interesting
read for those who like to keep up to date on the current positions of one
of today's most important public intellectuals." Metapsychology
