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.

Title: Probing Semantic Relations
Subtitle: Exploration and identification in specialized texts
Edited By: Alain Auger
Caroline Barrière

Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 23
Description:

Semantic relations are at the core of any representational system, and are
keys to enable the next generation of information processing systems with
semantic and reasoning capabilities. Acquisition, description, and
formalization of semantic relations are fundamentals in computer-based
systems where natural language processing is required. Probing Semantic
Relations
provides a state of the art of current research trends in the
area of knowledge extraction from text using linguistic patterns.

First published as a Special Issue of Terminology 14:1 (2008), the
current book emphasizes how definitional knowledge is conveyed by
conceptual and semantic relations such as synonymy, causality, hypernymy
(generic–specific), and meronymy (part–whole). Showing the difficulties and
successes of pattern-based approaches, the book illustrates current and
future challenges in knowledge acquisition from text.

This book provides new perspectives to researchers and practitioners in
terminology, knowledge engineering, natural language processing, and
semantics.
