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: Manuel de Langue Kinyarwanda, comprenant la Grammaire et un choix de contes et de proverbe
Written By: Eugène Hurel
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 07

Le kinyarwanda (parlé par un peu plus d'un million d'individus (les
Batutsi. les Bahutu, les Batwa) appartient a la grande famille de langues
que les linguistes désignent sous le nom de langues bantu. C'est donc une
langue à classes ou à agglutination initiale. Chaque mot comprend le
radical et un ou plusieurs affixes. Ce sont ces affixes qui servent à
caractériser le genre ou la classe et le nombre du substantif, à marquer
l'accord de celui-ci avec les autres parties du discours, à distinguer les
temps, les modes des verbes, à désigner dans la conjugaison les pronoms
sujets ou régimes. Les divers affixes et le radical sont nettement
distincts, quoique intimement soudés ensemble (préface, p.1).

Table de matières: Préface, le substantif, la voyelle euphonique, tableau
des préfixes ; l'adjectif, les pronomes, le verbe, l'adverbe, les
prépositions, les conjunctions, les interjections, l'euphonie, contes,

In his grammatical sketch Eugène Hurel mainly focuses on nominal and
verbal morphology of Kinyarwanda, a Bantu language of Rwanda. This
re-edition has been published as no. 07 in the LINCOM Gramatica (LINGram)
series (originally published 1911, written in French).
