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: Minimalist Interfaces
Subtitle: Evidence from Indonesian and Javanese
Written By: Yosuke Sato
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20155
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 155
Description:

This monograph explores the interface between syntax and its related
components through in-depth investigation of a sizable portion of the
grammar of Indonesian and Javanese. It can be read on two levels.
Theoretically, it proposes the minimalist interface thesis that
syntax-external linguistic interfaces are endowed with domain-specific
operations (insertion, deletion, and type shifting) to legitimize an
otherwise non-convergent result of the syntactic derivation for
phonological and semantic interpretation. Empirically, the monograph
substantiates this thesis from detailed analyses of four phenomena
(reduplication, active voice morphology, P-stranding under sluicing, and
nominal denotation). The study not only contains a wealth of new insights
into comparative syntax from the perspective of Indonesian and Javanese,
but also necessitates serious reconsideration of the common view of the
interfaces as merely ornamental components of natural language grammar.
The monograph should appeal to syntacticians, linguists interested in
linguistic interfaces and the organization of grammar, and researchers on
Austronesian languages.
