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: African American Women’s Language
Subtitle: Discourse, Education, and Identity
Edited By: Sonja L. Lanehart
Description:

"African American Women’s Language: Discourse, Education, and Identity" is
a groundbreaking collection of research on African American Women’s
Language that is long overdue. It brings together a range of research
including variationist, autoethnography, phenomenological, ethnographic,
and critical. The authors come from a variety of disciplines (e.g.,
Sociology, African American Studies, Africana Studies, Linguistics,
Sociophonetics, Sociolinguistics, Anthropology, Literacy, Education,
English, Ecological Literature, Film, Hip Hop, Language Variation),
scientific paradigms (e.g., critical race theory, narrative, interaction,
discursive, variationist, post-structural, and post-positive perspectives),
and inquiry methods (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, ethnographic, and
multimethod) while addressing a variety of African American female
populations (e.g., elementary school, middle school, adults) and activity
settings (e.g., classrooms, family, community, church, film).

Readers will get a good sense of the language, discourse, identity,
community, and grammar of African American women. The essays provide the
most current research on African American Women’s Language and expand a
literature that has too often only focused on male populations at the
expense of letting the sistas speak.
