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 Ecology of Arabic
Subtitle: A Study of Arabicization
Written By: Muhammad al-Sharkawi
URL: http://www.brill.nl/product_id34707
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

This book offers a comprehensive account of Arabicization in the Middle
East and Egypt in the early period of the Arab conquests. Drawing on
material from ancient Arabic grammarians as well as modern studies in
second language acquisition, it analyzes the linguistic and non-linguistic
ecological factors that contributed to the development of Arabic during the
early period after the Arab conquests. It describes the pre-Islamic
linguistic and sociolinguistic situation and traces the development in this
period. The sociological, cultural, and sociolinguistic context is sketched
to determine the nature and quality of the process of learning Arabic in
the early period. The work further discusses the process of learning Arabic
as a second language and the input provided by the native speakers, which
both affected the structure of the emerging dialects.
