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: Narrative Revisited
Subtitle: Telling a story in the age of new media
Edited By: Christian R. Hoffmann
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26amp%3Bbns%20199
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 199
Description:

The volume examines the role of narratives in old and new media. Its ten
contributions firstly center on the various forms and functions narratives
assume in computer-mediated environments, e.g. websites, weblogs,
message boards
, etc. In this light, past and present approaches to the
description of narratives are presented and reevaluated based on their ability to
capture the conceptual and methodological exigencies of new media. Secondly,
the volume sheds new light upon the multimodal composition of new media
narratives which typically feature multiple co-occurring semiotic modes such as
speech, sound, text, static or moving images. In this vein, each paper explores
a wide array of authentic examples from text genres as diverse as political
speeches, real-time narratives and contemporary feature films. Its wide scope
should not only appeal to linguists interested in the discursive and pragmatic
dimension of narratives but also to scholars and students in other scientific
disciplines.
