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: Ute Reference Grammar
Written By: T. Givón
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CLU%203
Series Title: Culture and Language Use 3
Description:

Ute is a Uto-Aztecan language of the northernmost (Numic) branch,
currently spoken on three reservations in western Colorado and
eastern Utah. Like many other native languages of Northern America,
Ute is severely endangered. This book is part of the effort toward its
preservation. Typologically, Ute offers a cluster of intriguing features,
best viewed from the perspective of diachronic change and
grammaticalization. The book presents a comprehensive synchronic
description of grammatical structures and their communicative
functions, as well as a diachronic account of a grammar in the midst
of change. The book is the first of a 3-volume series which also
includes a collection of oral texts and a dictionary. Ute speakers and
tribal members may find in the present volume a step-by-step
description of how words are combined into meaningful
communication. Linguists may find a detailed account of one
language, an account that is unabashedly informed by universals of
grammar, communication and change.
