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: Das Gleiche im Verschiedenen [The Same in the Different. Sport Metaphors and Praise of the Victor in Pindar's Epinikia]
Subtitle: Metapher des Sports und Lob des Siegers in Pindars Epinikien
Written By: Claas Lattmann
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/at/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110247107-1
Series Title: Untersuchungen zur antiken Literatur und Geschichte 102
Description:

The Greek poet Pindar (c. 520-440 BC) wrote odes honouring the victors of
Greek sporting festivals such as the Olympic Games. They have long been a
source of curiosity to scholars, particularly since they appear to mention
the victor only in passing. This book, using the methodology of Charles S.
Peirce’s semiotics and by reconstructing the cultural historical setting,
reveals that this impression is misleading: in songs with a coherent and
meaningful structure, Pindar uses elaborate sporting metaphors to praise
the victors exuberantly and presents them as present-day heroes.
