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.

Book Information

   

Title: A Sanskrit-English Dictionary
Subtitle: Based upon the St Petersburg Lexicons
Written By: Carl Cappeller
Description:

This one-volume Sanskrit–English dictionary, first published in 1891, is an
English version of the seven-volume Sanskrit-Worterbuch, published at St
Petersburg between 1852 and 1875, and contains about 50,000 entries. The
aim of the editor, Carl Cappeller, was to provide a glossary for Sanskrit
texts which were at the time becoming available in printed editions in
Europe, particularly ‘such works as are most appreciated and studied by
every friend of Sanskrit literature’. He hoped that it would provide ‘not
only a handbook for the beginner in Sanskrit, who wants to have as many
words as possible explained to him, but also to serve the purposes of the
linguistic student, whose interest is limited to the old stock of words and
their relations to other languages’. The dictionary has stood the test of
time and is still consulted by students of Sanskrit.
