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.

Written By: Susan Bassnett
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694089
Series Title: Topics in Translation
Description:

This collection of essays brings together a decade of writings on
translation by leading international translation studies expert, Susan
Bassnett. The essays cover a range of topics and will be useful to anyone
with an interest in how different cultures communicate. Bassnett draws
upon her personal experience to explore issues such as why the same things
cannot be expressed in all languages, why translators in war zones risk
their lives for their work, whether humour can travel across cultures, why
translated menus are often so bad and whether poetry does indeed get lost
in translation.
