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: The Use of Databases in Cross-Linguistic Studies
Edited By: Martin Everaert
Simon Musgrave
Alexis Dimitriadis
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110193084-1
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 41
Description:

This book promotes the development of linguistic databases by describing a
number of successful database projects, focusing especially on
cross-linguistic and typological research. It has become increasingly clear
that ready access to knowledge about cross-linguistic variation is of great
value to many types of linguistic research. Such a systematic body of data
is essential in order to gain a proper understanding of what is truly
universal in language and what is determined by specific cultural settings.
Moreover, it is increasingly needed as a tool to systematically evaluate
contrasting theoretical claims. The book includes a chapter on general
problems of using databases to handle language data and chapters on a
number of individual projects.
