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: Connected Words
Subtitle: Word associations and second language vocabulary acquisition
Written By: Paul Meara
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26LT%2024
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 24
Description:

What words come into your head when you think of SUN? For native English
speakers, the most common responses are MOON, SHINE and HOT, and about half
of all native speaker responses to SUN are covered by these three words. L2
English speakers are much less obliging, and produce patterns of
association that are markedly different from those produced by native
speakers. Why? What does this tell us about the way L2 speakers'
vocabularies grow and develop? This volume provides a user-friendly
introduction to a research technique which has the potential to answer some
long-standing puzzles about L2 vocabulary. The method is easy to use, even
for inexperienced researchers, but it produces immensely rich data, which
can be analysed on many different levels. The book explores how word
association data can be used to probe the development of vocabulary depth,
productive vocabulary skills and lexical organisation in L2 speakers.
