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.

The Arawak or Arowak inhabit the costal districts of Surinam and British

in the first place, and an endeavor has been made to discuss all the
particularities of the language as found in these texts (from the preface).

words, infinite verbs, auxiliary verb a, intensives, conjunctions,
formation of verbs, classes of utterances, family relations, origins of the
