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: Doing Diversity
Subtitle: Teachers' construction of their classroom reality
Written By: Melinda Dooly

Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 82
Description:

How teachers and students work together through discourse to construct
their understanding of the context they live and work in will influence, in
many different ways, the interaction within their classrooms. This book
describes an in-depth research that used ethnomethodology and conversation
analysis to study three different groups of teachers. The study highlights
the teachers' perspectives concerning heterogeneity in the classroom, using
recordings of discussions concerning cultural and linguistic diversity.

Moreover, this research examines the discourse participants' choice in the
use (deployment) of categorical descriptions and reveals the speaker as
positioned, interested and accountable for meaning construction. Thus,
«portraits» of differing pre-service and in-service teachers' orientation
towards linguistic and cultural diversity are analysed. By recognising
these categorizations as partially bounded by previous knowledge and
partially constructed in situ, the research sees meaning-making by teachers
as a part of their lived work of teaching. It also reveals the social
nature of these categorizations because they are an inseparable element of
the socially constituted fabric of language in the environment of schooling
and society.

Contents:

Meaning Category Analysis - Conversation Analysis - Categorisation -
Linguistic and Cultural Diversity.
