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: Academic and Professional Discourse Genres in Spanish
Edited By: Giovanni Parodi
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2040
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 40
Description:

This volume offers a description and a deep examination of discourse genres
across four disciplines (Psychology, Social Work, Industrial Chemistry, and
Construction Engineering), in academic and professional settings. The study
is based on one of the largest available corpus on disciplinary written
discourse in Spanish (PUCV-2006 Corpus of Spanish containing almost 60
million words). Twelve chapters range from the theoretical guiding
principles of the research in terms of genre conception, the detailed
description of each corpus (academic and professional), computational
analysis from multi-dimensional perspectives, and the qualitative analysis
of two specialized genres (University Textbook and Disciplinary Text) in
terms of their rhetorical macro-moves and moves. Theoretically speaking, a
multi-dimensional perspective (social, linguistic and cognitive) is
emphasized and special attention to the cognitive nature of discourse
genres is supported.
