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: Topic and Discourse Structure in West Greenlandic Agreement Constructions
Written By: Anna M Berge
URL: http://www.nebraskapress.unl.edu/product/Topic-and-Discourse-Structure-in-West-Greenlandic,673411.aspx
Series Title: Studies in the Native Languages of the Americas
Description:

West Greenlandic Eskimo, a part of the Eskimo-Aleut language family spoken
all across the Arctic, is primarily found among the Native peoples of central
west Greenland. In this highly nuanced study of West Greenlandic, linguist
Anna Berge examines how the speaker’s role affects syntactic structures within
discourse. Also included are transcripts of conversations with fluent Native
speakers, providing a practical context in which to examine these grammatical
questions.

This study was the winner of the prestigious Mary R. Haas Award, presented
annually by the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the
Americas, the highest award given in the study of Native languages.
