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: Ta(l)king English Phonetics Across Frontiers
Edited By: Biljana Čubrović
Tatjana Paunović
Description:

Please Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

Highlighting some interesting and intriguing aspects of English phonetics
and phonology from a variety of perspectives, this book brings up a number
of empirical questions in order to emphasize the necessity of taking a very
broad view of what spoken English means in today's socio-cultural context.
English has become a truly global means of communication, used as a first,
second, or additional language by millions and millions of diverse
speakers, in a multitude of different communicative contexts, so that the
very notions of native and non-native seem to have changed profoundly, as
have the notions of central/ peripheral and standard/ non-standard with
regard to English varieties spoken around the globe. Therefore, today more
than ever before, in studying English phonetics many small research steps
need to be taken to provide diverse and broad empirical data from as many
different standpoints as possible. This collection indeed looks at English
phonetics from a wide spectrum of perspectives, including those of native
or EFL speakers, language varieties, L2 language teaching and learning, as
well as language contact, development, and change.
