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: Academic Literacy and the Languages of Change
Edited By: Lucia Thesen
Ermien van Pletzen
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=132955&SearchType=Basic
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

“Chapters offer future directions for both research and pedagogy…readers
would be foolish to ignore the relevance of this book to fundamental
questions about the function and goals of higher education globally”
Journal of Sociolinguistics

This book is an analysis of student literacy in an academic setting, and
how this has changed due to political, economic and social factors. The
contributors, who are all engaged in academic literacy work at a South
African university, use the theoretical tradition of New Literacy Studies
as developed by theorists such as James Gee, Brian Street and Gnnther
Kress, and apply this to a case study of one university in the changing
context of South Africa.

Academic Literacy and the Languages of Change will be of interest to
postgraduates and academics researching sociolinguistics, or language and
education.
