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: Comparative and Contrastive Studies of Information Structure
Edited By: Carsten Breul
Edward Göbbel
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20165
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 165
Description:

This volume presents original comparative and contrastive research into
various aspects of information structure (topic, focus, contrastivity,
givenness, anaphoricity) as well as into forms and structures whose
realisation depends on information-structural factors (clefts,
dislocations, reflexives, null subjects, prosodic features, interrogatives)
in a number of different languages (Catalan, English, French, Georgian,
German, Hebrew, Hungarian). Each contribution emphasises differences or
commonalities between the languages under investigation with respect to the
realisation of information structural categories or with respect to the
information structural implications of a given form or structure. The
specific comparative-contrastive perspective of the volume makes a
substantial contribution towards a better understanding of language
specific and universal aspects of information structure. It raises
significant questions and provides solutions for the formal representation
and the functional properties of information structural categories.
