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: Redefining Literary Semiotics
Edited By: Harri Veivo
Christina Ljungberg
Jørgen Dines Johansen
Description:

This volume marks a shift. For it reveals how literary semiotics at present
has moved toward methodological pluralism. The sharp lines of division,
especially between the two most dominant approaches, those of C.S. Peirce
and Ferdinand de Saussure, have dissolved and a manifest synergy has
emerged from the deepening appreciating that the focal concern of literary
scholarship is irreducibly heterogeneous. This heterogeneity necessitates a
variety of approaches. The significance of literary texts is neither
entirely identifiable with authorial intention nor susceptible to empirical
verification. Even so, the possibility of shared meaning and mutual
understanding, whether or not acknowledged, animates the work of literary
scholars. Approaches and theories in which communication and representation
are explained, rather than explained away, deserve a fuller hearing than
they have received in the recent past. The contributors to this volume
highlight the communicative functions of literary texts and, more
controversially, the representational possibilities secured by literary
production.
