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: A Method for Linguistic Metaphor Identification
Subtitle: From MIP to MIPVU
Written By: Gerard J. Steen

Series Title: Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research 14
Description:

This book presents a complete method for the identification of metaphor in
language at the level of word use. It is based on extensive methodological
and empirical corpus-linguistic research in two languages, English and
Dutch. The method is formulated as an explicit manual of instructions
covering one chapter, the method being a development and refinement of the
popular MIP procedure presented by the Pragglejaz Group in 2007. The
extended version is called MIPVU, as it was developed at VU University
Amsterdam. Its application is demonstrated in five case studies addressing
metaphor in English news texts, conversations, fiction, and academic texts,
and Dutch news texts and conversations. Two methodological chapters follow
reporting a series of successful reliability tests and a series of post hoc
troubleshooting exercises. The final chapter presents a first empirical
analysis of the findings, and shows what this type of methodological
attention can mean for research and theory.
