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: Quantitative Syntax Analysis
Written By: Reinhard Köhler
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/180135?format=G&rskey=qC5g6L&result=1
Series Title: Quantitative Linguistics [QL] 65
Description:

This is the first book which brings together the fields of theoretical and
empirical studies in syntax on the one hand and the methodology of
quantitative linguistics on the other hand. The author provides the theoretical
background for this enterprise on the basis of the philosophy of science and
of linguistic considerations including a discussion of Chomsky’s attitude
against the application of statistical methods to syntactic phenomena. He
gives a short introduction into the aims and methods of the quantitative
approach to linguistics in general and to syntax in particular. The following
chapters inform the reader about the measurement of syntactic properties,
possibilities to acquire empirical data from syntactically annotated text
corpora and the most common mathematical models and methods for the
analysis of syntactic and syntagmatic material. Then, a number of prominent
approaches and hypotheses about interrelations between properties of
syntactic constructions are presented and evaluated on material from various
languages and text kinds. Finally, the theory of synergetic linguistics and its
application to syntax is introduced including the integration of such famous
hypotheses as Yngve’s depth hypothesis and Hawkins’s "Early immediate
constituent" principle.
