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.

Description:

This volume comprises a collection of papers on the theme of grammatical
change that evolved out of a workshop sponsored by the Centre for Research
on Language Change (The Australian National University). The papers extend
the boundaries of what has been addressed under the label of ‘grammatical
change’ by applying theories and models of grammatical change to new
evidence; by illuminating the historical relationships between grammar and
other levels of linguistics; and by extending the range of languages that
have been examined from the perspective of grammatical change.

Languages discussed include Murriny Patha, Walpiri, Gurindji, Walmajarri,
and Kayardild, Lardil, Yukulta, English, Dutch, German, Afrikaans, French,
Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Macedonian,
Slovenian, Albanian, Greek, Old Church Slavonic, Tocharian, Mandarin,
Cantonese, Quechua, Basque, and Tok Pisin.
