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: Layering of Size and Type Noun Constructions in English
Written By: Lieselotte Brems
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/128977?result=1&rskey=Lzsr9U&format=G
Series Title: Topics in English Linguistics [TiEL] 74
Description:

On the basis of synchronic and diachronic data analysis, the volume takes a
close look at the synchronic layers of binominal size noun and type noun uses
(a bunch/a load of X; a sort of X; a Y type of X) and reconsiders the framework
of grammaticalization in view of issues raised by the phrases under discussion.
As a result, a construction grammar-approach to grammaticalization is
developed which does justice to the syntagmatic lexical, or collocational,
reclustering observed in the data within an eclectic cognitive-functional
approach.
