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: South Slavic Discourse Particles
Edited By: Mirjana N. Dedaić
Mirjana Mišković-Luković
URL: http://benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20197
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 197
Description:

Discourse particles, discourse markers and pragmatic markers
refer to phenomena that linguists have begun to probe only since the
mid-1980s. Long-ignored in traditional linguistics and textbook grammars,
and still relegated to marginal status in South Slavic, these linguistic
phenomena have emerged as invaluable devices for cutting-edge theories of
the semantics/pragmatics interface. This book, which is a pioneering study
in such linguistic phenomena in South Slavic languages, is also among the
first of its kind for a related group of languages. It builds on the recent
findings of some of the most influential linguistically-oriented theories,
such as Relevance Theory, Argumentation Theory and coherence-based
approaches to explain the meaning and use of certain discourse/pragmatic
particles/markers in Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and
Slovene. These particles/markers are part of the contemporary and
historical lexicons of the South Slavic languages, varying across regions
and time, but also differing in origin. This book, which draws from
naturally occurring data, written media and constructed examples, aims at a
wider audience including scholars working in semantics/pragmatics and
Slavic languages, and applied specialists interested in this area of
research. The authors hope that this book will be conceived as a starting
point for a structured inquiry into the flourishing field of discourse
particles in South Slavic.
