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.

Title: Das Kisiha
Written By: H A Fokken
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 05

Das Kisiha ist einer der vielen Dialekte des Kidšaga, welches letztere die
Sprache der Kilimandscharo-Bewohner ist. So viele Landschaften es an den
Abhängen dieses schneebedeckten Riesen gibt, in so viel verschiedene
Dialekte zersplittert ist das Kidšaga. Die verschieden stark ausgeprägten
Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Dialekten lassen sich in drei Gruppen

1. Einzelne Wörter sind in diesem Dialekt gebräuchlich, in jenem unbekannt;
2. einzelne grammatische Regeln sind verschieden;
3. einzelne phonetische Regeln sind verschieden.

Im folgenden findet nur der Kisihadialekt Berücksichtigung, und ich erlaube
mir, das Wenige niederzuschreiben, was mir während des ersten Jahres
meines hiesigen Aufenthaltes als wahrscheinlich Richtiges aufgefallen ist.

Inhalt: Orthographie, Feststellung der Grundkonsonanten, Feststellung der
Vokale, Feststellung der nasalierten Konsonanten, Feststellung der
Mischlaute, Einfluß von Vokalen auf die Konsonanten, Die Nasale. Index.

In his study H.A. Fokken focuses mainly on the phonology of the grammar of
Kisiha. This re-edition has been published as no. 05 in the LINCOM
Gramatica (LINGram) series (originally published 1905, MSOS 08, written in
