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: Deconstructing Constructions
Edited By: Christopher S. Butler
Javier Martín Arista
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20107
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 107
Description:

This collection of papers brings together contributions from experts in
functional linguistics and in Construction Grammar approaches, with the aim
of exploring the concept of construction from different angles and trying
to arrive at a better understanding of what a construction is, and what
roles constructions play in the frameworks which can be located within a
multidimensional functional-cognitive space. At the same time, the volume
has a historical dimension, for instance in plotting the developments which
led to recent models. The book is organised in three sections: the first
deals with particular theoretical issues, the second is devoted to the
recent Lexical Constructional Model, and the third presents a number of
analyses of specific constructions. The volume thus makes an important
contribution to the ongoing debate about the relationship between
functionalist and constructionist models.
