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.

Description:

* Analysis of imagination in conversation from a conversation-analysis
perspective
* Combination of interactional linguistics and cognitive semantics
* Empirical basis (corpus of German and Spanish conversations)

Imagination in conversations: This book explores a mental phenomenon
from a conversation analytic perspective. It analyses sequences from
interactions in which the speakers assume the roles of characters,
animate what they say and put themselves in an imagined scene.
Imagination is understood as conversational activity and mental
phenomenon to establish a shared cognition. The study provides an
important contribution to the topic of imagination and impressively
combines the research fields of interactional linguistics and cognitive
semantics.
