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: Theory and Description in Generative Syntax
Subtitle: A Case Study in West Flemish
Written By: Liliane Haegeman
Description:

This book offers a detailed description and analysis of West Flemish, a
dialect of Dutch, within the framework of Government and Binding Theory.
The study focusses on two constructions: the doubling of subject pronouns,
and the order of verb phrase constituents. For each construction the book
gives a rigourous account of the data, and a theoretical analysis. It
demonstrates how recent developments in generative syntax can help to
explain the properties of individual dialects. Liliane Haegeman combines
expertise in theoretical linguistics and traditional philology. Her study
blends rigourous description of a little-studied dialect with considerable
theoretical sophistication and insight. It will be welcomed by all
linguists with an interest in generative syntax, as well as those
interested in the Germanic languages.
