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: India in Translation through Hindi Literature
Subtitle: A Plurality of Voices
Edited By: Maya Burger
Nicola Pozza
Series Title: Worlds of South and Inner Asia - Volume 2
Description:

What role have translations from Hindi literary works played in shaping and
transforming our knowledge about India? In this book, renowned scholars,
translators and Hindi writers from India, Europe, and the United States
offer their approaches to this question. Their articles deal with the
political, cultural, and linguistic criteria germane to the selection and
translation of Hindi works, the nature of the enduring links between India
and Europe, and the reception of translated texts, particularly through the
perspective of book history. More personal essays, both on the writing
process itself or on the practice of translation, complete the volume and
highlight the plurality of voices that are inherent to any translation.

As the outcome of an international symposium held at the University of
Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2008, India in Translation through Hindi
Literature engages in the building of critical histories of the encounter
between India and the «West», the use and impact of translations in this
context, and Hindi literature and culture in connection to English
(post)colonial power, literature and culture.
