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: Morphological Autonomy
Subtitle: Perspectives From Romance Inflectional Morphology
Edited By: Martin Maiden
John Charles Smith
Maria Goldbach
Marc-Olivier Hinzelin
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199589982.do
Description:

This book is about the nature of morphology and its place in the structure of
grammar. Drawing on a wide range of aspects of Romance inflectional
morphology, leading scholars present detailed arguments for the autonomy of
morphology, i.e. morphology has phenomena and mechanisms of its own that
are not reducible to syntax or phonology. But which principles and rules govern
this independent component and which phenomena can be described or
explicated by the mechanisms of the morphemic level? In shedding light on
these questions, this volume constitutes a major contribution to Romance
historical morphology in particular, and to our understanding of the nature and
importance of morphomic structure in language change in general.
