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: The Idea of English in Japan
Subtitle: Ideology and the Evolution of a Global Language
Written By: Philip Seargeant
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692016
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book examines the ways in which English is conceptualised as a global
language in Japan, and considers how the resultant language ideologies –
drawn in part from universal discourses; in part from context-specific
trends in social history – inform the relationships that people in Japan
have towards the language.
