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.

Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 82-83
Description:

This two volume collection on formulaic language is among the first ones in
the field. The authors of the present book represent a diverse group of
international scholars in linguistics and psychology. The language data
analyzed are similarly diverse, including languages such as Arabic,
Japanese, Polish, and Spanish and extending to various styles. While volume
1 focuses on the very definition of linguistic formulae and on their
grammatical, semantic, stylistic, and historical aspects, volume 2 explores
how formulae are acquired and lost by speakers of a language, in what way
they are psychologically real, and their functions in discourse. Since most
of the papers are readily accessible to readers with only basic familiarity
with linguistics, besides being a resource in linguistic research, the book
may be used in courses on discourse structure, pragmatics, semantics,
language acquisition, and syntax.
