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.
This monograph on the verb "have" in the function of a full verb asserts that have-constructions in the syntactic analysis are to be placed in relationship with absolute with-constructions (cf. "Mit den Füßen auf dem Tisch erwarte ich meine Schwiegereltern" [Literal translation: "With my feet on the table I expect my parents-in-law"]. Furthermore, the study also contributes to a better understanding of the syntax and semantics of adjectives. The findings are interpreted within the context of generative and optimal theoretical models.
