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: Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies on the Iraq Conflict
Subtitle: Wording the War
Edited By: John Morley
Paul Bayley
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/Corpus-Assisted-Discourse-Studies-on-the-Iraq-Conflict-isbn9780415871372
Series Title: Routledge Advances in Corpus Linguistics
Description:

This volume seeks to illustrate the fundamental role of language in
political action, focusing on the war in Iraq. It combines quantitative
methods, based on a sophisticated modular corpus that was queried through
special software with the aim of identifying regularly occurring lexical
and semantic patterns, with classical discourse analysis, which seeks to
investigate naturally occurring language in the context in which it is
produced. Interpreting the field of politics quite widely, to include news
reporting and a quasi-judicial inquiry into the behavior of politicians and
journalists, discourses in the USA and the UK are considered. The central
purpose of the volume is to gain insights not just into language, and the
ways in which we can investigate it through a corpus, but also into the
ways in which political action is realized through discourse.
