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: Pragmatics
Written By: Siobhan Chapman
Series Title: Palgrave Modern Linguistics
Description:

This accessible and engaging text introduces the field of pragmatics, the study
of the relationship between linguistic meaning and context. Assuming no prior
knowledge, Siobhan Chapman surveys the development of pragmatics from the
very beginning to the present day, and engages with many of the most recent
debates in the field, including topics such as experimental pragmatics and
(im)politeness theory.

This highly-readable text focuses on core theoretical pragmatics, but also
considers how pragmatics has been applied to the study of various aspects of
language in use, such as literature, language acquisition and clinical linguistics.
Each chapter concludes with useful suggestions for further reading, including
both primary and secondary sources. Comprehensive and up-to-date,
Pragmatics goes beyond an introduction, encouraging readers at all levels to
understand and engage with the very latest issues and ideas.
