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.
The book is issued by the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Science, and the Russian State University for Humanities in Moscow. It covers the issues of historical development of personal pronouns and person marking in Indo-European languages and offers a Proto-Indo-European reconstruction based on both internal and external comparison data.
