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: Pragmatics and Non-Verbal Communication
Written By: Tim Wharton
Description:

The way we say the words we say helps us convey our intended meanings.
Indeed, the tone of voice we use, the facial expressions and bodily
gestures we adopt while we are talking, often add entirely new layers of
meaning to those words. How the natural non-verbal properties of utterances
interact with linguistic ones is a question that is often largely ignored.
This book redresses the balance, providing a unique examination of
non-verbal behaviours from a pragmatic perspective. It charts a point of
contact between pragmatics, linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science,
ethology and psychology, and provides the analytical basis to answer some
important questions: How are non-verbal behaviours interpreted? What do
they convey? How can they be best accommodated within a theory of utterance
interpretation?
