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: Electronic Emotion
Subtitle: The Mediation of Emotion via Information and Communication Technologies
Edited By: Jane Vincent
Leopoldina Fortunati
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11866
Series Title: Interdisciplinary Communication Studies. Vol. 3
Description:

Electronic emotion is the emotion lived, re-lived or discovered through
machines. It is the emotion that users of information and communication
technologies (ICTs) feel when using or not using different devices. Through
ICTs emotion is amplified, shaped, stereotyped and re-invented but at the
same time sacrificed. This book addresses a number of questions such as:
What does electronic emotion actually mean? How does emotion change when
mediated by information and communication technologies? How are the
production and the consumption of electronic and mediated emotion
articulated? What emotional investment do people express in ICTs? The
editors have brought together a distinctive group of scholars from multiple
disciplines including social sciences, linguistics and information sciences
to discuss and provide some answers to these questions.
