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: Dependency in Linguistic Description
Edited By: Alain Polguère
Igor A. Mel’čuk
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20111
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 111
Description:

The book covers three major topics crucial for contemporary syntactic
research. Firstly, it offers a sketch of a general theory of dependency in
natural language. Different types of linguistic dependencies are
distinguished (semantic, syntactic, and morphological), the criteria for
their recognition are formulated, and all possible combinations are
discussed in some detail. Secondly, it demonstrates the application of the
general theory in two specific domains: establishing the system of
Surface-Syntactic Relations in French and linear positioning of clitics in
Serbian. Thirdly, it presents a formal sketch of Head-Driven
Phrase-Structure Grammar modelled in terms of syntactic dependencies.
