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: Focus Particles in German
Subtitle: Syntax, prosody, and information structure
Written By: Stefan Sudhoff
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20151
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 151
Description:

This study explores the grammar of focus particles in German. It gives a
thorough description and analysis of focus particle constructions and links
their syntactic, semantic, and information structural properties to their
prosodic characteristics. The study also shows that focus particles present
a particularly well-suited subject for the investigation of the modularity
of grammar in general. The first part of the book deals with the syntax,
semantics, and pragmatics of focus particle constructions and results in a
modular account of the relation between their word order, information
structure, and meaning. The second part presents a corpus study and several
speech production and perception experiments investigating the prosodic
realization of the constructions. The integration of these two lines of
research results in a comprehensive theory of focus particles and of the
interaction of grammar and information structure in German.
