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: Vorstudien zur Grammatik und zum Wörterbuche der Soqotri-Sprache
Written By: Maximilian Bittner
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 38

Unter dem Titel Vorstudien zur Grammatik und zum Wörterbuche der
Soqotri-Sprache gedenke ich eine Reihe von Abhandlungen zu
veröffentlichen, welche die auffallendsten und wichtigsten
Erscheinungen der Sprache der Insel Soqotra in grammatischer und
lexikalischer Hinsicht zum Gegenstande haben. Daneben soll diese Band
auch zeigen, wie innig Mehri, Shuri und Soqotri miteinander
zusammenhängen und wie diese drei Mhara-Sprachen, wie ich sie fortan
nennen möchte, vom Arabischen sowohl als auch vom Äthiopischen sich
abscheiden. Zugrunde gelegt ist diesen Vorstudien das in den Bänden
der Südarabischen Expediation der Kaiserlichen Akademie der
Wissenschaften in Wien publizierte Soqotri-Material (Re-edition;
original-ly published 1913/18 in Wien; written in German)
