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: Le Proverbe Entre Langues Et Cultures
Subtitle: Une étude de linguistique confrontative allemand/français/bété
Written By: Jean-Philippe Claver Zouogbo
Series Title: Etudes contrastives. Vol. 10

Ce travail est une contribution importante au fondement linguistique des
relations Nord-Sud de notre monde globalisé. L'auteur réussit une
comparaison originale entre les concepts et les images transmis par les
proverbes de l'allemand, du français et du bété. La proximité conceptuelle
entre les cultures surprend autant que la diversité des métaphores ancrées
dans les milieux respectifs. Des théories sémantiques interprétatives et
cognitivistes ainsi que des méthodologies lexicographiques actuelles y
trouvent des applications adéquates, livrant des résultats bien organisés.
Les études interculturelles en bénéficient pour leur plus grand rayonnement.

Contenu :

Langues et cultures - Linguistique générale et comparée - Phraséologie et
parémiologie - Ethnolinguistique - Lexicographie - Sémantique cognitive -
Didactique de l'allemand - Parémiodidactique.
