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: Defining Metonymy in Cognitive Linguistics
Subtitle: Towards a consensus view
Edited By: Réka Benczes
Antonio Barcelona
Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/hcp.28
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 28
Description:

While cognitive linguists are essentially in agreement on both the
conceptual nature and the fundamental importance of metonymy, there remain
disagreements on a number of specific but, nevertheless, crucial issues.
Research questions include: Is metonymy a relationship between “entities”
or “domains”? Is it necessarily referential? What is meant by the claim
that metonymy is a “stand-for” relationship? Can metonymy be considered a
mapping? How can it be distinguished from “active zones” or “facets”? Is it
a prototype category? The ten contributions of the present volume address
such core issues on the basis of the latest research results. The volume is
unique in being devoted exclusively to the delimitation of the notion of
metonymy without ignoring points of divergence among the various
contributors, thus paving the way towards a consensual conception of
metonymy.
