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: Reading in a Second Language
Subtitle: Moving from Theory to Practice
Written By: William Grabe
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780511687099
Description:

New Edition

This volume, through a detailed treatment of the cognitive processes that
support reading, explains how reading really works. It offers a thorough
overview of important and current research, including first language research,
which is not often found in second language acquisition (SLA) publications.
This book is a true example of applied linguistics; it makes well-defined
linkages between theory and practice, discussing the implications and
applications of second language reading theories on instructional practices. It
is a valuable resource and reference for action researchers, curriculum
designers, teachers, administrators, and those interested in exploring
theoretical issues grounded in instructional contexts.
