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: Indogermanische Grammatik (Volume 1)
Subtitle: Einleitung. I. Etymologie. II Konsonantismus
Written By: Hermann Alfred Hirt
Description:

Hermann Alfred Hirt (1865–1936) taught Greek, Latin and early Germanic
languages at Leipzig University from 1892 to 1912 before moving to the
chair of Sanskrit and comparative linguistics at Giessen. Born around the
time when Bopp and Schleicher were publishing their ground-breaking work on
Indo-European, and a young man when Brugmann published his monumental
comparative grammar (all available in this series), Hirt began this
seven-volume grammar in the 1920s soon after the exciting discovery of
Tocharian and the decipherment of Hittite. The project arose out of his
extensive research on the historical phonology of Indo-European vowels,
which led him to consider much wider issues. Volume 1 (1927) introduces the
Indo-European language family, its origins and subgroups, discusses
etymology, roots and semantic shift, and analyses the Indo-European
consonant system.
