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: Esperanto
Subtitle: The Student's Complete Text Book. Containing Full Grammar, Exercises, Conversations, Commercial Letters, and Two Vocabularies
Written By: J. C. O'Connor
Series Title: LINCOM Tutoria 04
Description:

This Grammar of the Auxiliary International Language, "Esperanto" - the
first published in England - was personally revised by and received the
official approval of its inventor, Dr. Zamenhof.

Thus it was prepared to supply a want is not a mere façon de parler. For
months before this issue of the first edition in 1903 hundreds of inquirers
had written urgently requesting a grammar suitable for English students. In
compiling a book to meet this demand my chief desire and aim has been to
prepare a Grammar, which, while being a complete in all its parts and
containing everything that is necessary for a sound knowledge of the
language, should be brief, clear, full, but not redundant (from the preface
of the 1913 edition).

Contents: The Making of an International Language by Dr. Zamenhof. Synopsis
of the Grammar of Esperanto: Part I: The Grammar (list of correlative
words, how to build up new words). Part II: Exercises on the Grammar. Part
III: Conversations. Part IV: Letters, commercial, ideomatic phrases, etc.
Part V: Vocabularies (English - Esperanto, Esperanto-English). Appendix
(names of countries, foods, etc.).

(re-edition; originally printed 1913, London)
