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: The Language Difference
Subtitle: Language and Development in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region
Written By: Paulin Djité
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693402
Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

Language is a sensitive issue in the developing world, because language
choice and behaviour are integral to the social, economic and political
stability of multicultural societies. To what extent does this argument
hold? Does language make a difference when it comes to development, and is
there a perceptible difference in development between countries that is
attributable to their choice of language? This book sets out to answer
these questions by investigating how language has been and is being used in
four countries of the Greater Mekong Sub-region (i.e. Cambodia, the Lao
PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam), especially in the critical areas of education,
health, the economy and governance.
