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.

Description:

"Structure is at the rock-bottom of all explanatory sciences" (Jan Koster).
Forty years ago, the hypothesis that underlying the bewildering variety of
syntactic phenomena are general and unified structural patterns of
unexpected beauty and simplicity gave rise to major advancements in the
study of Dutch and Germanic syntax, with important implications for the
theory of grammar as a whole. Jan Koster was one of the central figures in
this development, and he has continued to explore the structure preserving
hypothesis throughout his illustrious career. This collection of articles
by over forty syntacticians celebrates the advancements made in the study
of syntax over the past forty years, reflecting on the structural
principles underlying syntactic phenomena and emulating the approach to
syntactic analysis embodied in Jan Koster's teaching and research.
