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: News Talk
Subtitle: Investigating the Language of Journalism
Written By: Colleen Cotter
Description:

Written by a former news reporter and editor, News Talk gives us an
insider's view of the media, showing how journalists select and construct
their news stories. Colleen Cotter goes behind the scenes, revealing how
language is chosen and shaped by news staff into the stories we read and
hear. Tracing news stories from start to finish, she shows how the actions
of journalists and editors - and the limitations of news writing formulas -
may distort a story that was prepared with the most determined effort to be
fair and accurate. Using insights from both linguistics and journalism,
News Talk is a remarkable picture of a hidden world and its working
practices on both sides of the Atlantic. It will interest those involved in
language study, media and communication studies and those who want to
understand how media shape our language and our view of the world.
