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: The Multiliteracies Classroom
Written By: Kathy A. Mills
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693181
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

The multiliteracies approach to literacy education has become established as an
accessible and effective paradigm for classroom practice in the 21st century.
The Multiliteracies Classroom enlivens this theory with its vivid description of
events in a real classroom. Teachers will identify with the lively transcripts of
classroom interactions, and be inspired to widen students’ access to new
literacy practices in an increasingly digital and globalised world. The possibilities
and constraints that can be encountered when implementing multiliteracies are
explored in detail. Educators know from experience that students begin their
classroom journey with entirely unequal opportunities for literacy success. The
Multiliteracies Classroom does not ignore this reality, highlighting the influence
of society’s patterns of power on literacy learning in the digital age. Its key
themes provide a blueprint for the future of literacy research and practice.
