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.

Book Information

   

Title: Case and Agreement from Fringe to Core
Subtitle: A Minimalist Approach
Written By: Stefan Keine
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234398-1
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 536
Description:

This book explores the view that impoverishment and Agree operations are
part of a single grammatical component. The architecture set forth here
gives rise to complex but highly systematic interactions between the two
operations. This interaction is shown to provide a unified and general
account of apparently diverse and unrelated instances of eccentric argument
encoding that so far have remained elusive to a unified theoretical
account. The proposed view of the grammatical architecture achieves an
integration of these phenomena within better-studied languages and thus
gives rise to a more general theory of case and agreement phenomena. The
empirical evidence on the basis of which the proposal is developed draws
from a wide range of typologically non-related languages, including Basque,
Hindi, Icelandic, Itelmen, Marathi, Nez Perce, Niuean, Punjabi, Sahaptin,
Selayarese, Yukaghir, and Yurok . The proposal has far-reaching
consequences for the study of grammatical architecture, linguistic
interfaces, derivational locality in apparently non-local dependencies and
the role of functional considerations in formal approaches to the human
language faculty.
