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: Love Ya Hate Ya
Subtitle: The Sociolinguistic Study of Youth Language and Youth Identities
Edited By: J. Normann Jørgensen
Description:

This volume shows the formidable range of variation in youth language.
Youth language is analyzed as a phenomenon in negotiations of identities
and social relations. The contributions particularly concentrate on youth
language in late modern urban societies. This is an area of study which has
been gaining increasing attention in sociolinguistics over the past few
years. One observation that is almost inevitable is that there is a string
of similarities to be found between youths in quite different
circumstances, ranging from university students in Argentina, to juvenile
delinquents in Greece and to skaters in Greenland. A wide range of language
situations are covered, from Danish, Cypriot Greek, Turkish, to Spanish,
Greenlandic, Norwegian, Catalan, Spanish, and of course English. The
articles in this anthology document and analyze linguistic youth styles and
behaviors as well as attitudes. In their totality they present a picture of
youth language as functional, socially valuable, and flexible, with a
special emphasis on identity negotiations.
