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.

Book Information

   

Title: Sabellian Demonstratives
Subtitle: Forms and Functions
Written By: Emmanuel Dupraz
URL: http://www.brill.nl/sabellian-demonstratives
Series Title: Brill's Studies in Indo-European Languages & Linguistics
Description:

Past research on the Sabellian languages has been devoted mainly to the
phonetic and morphological features of these languages as elements for the
reconstruction of the prehistoric stages of Latin. The present book aims at
analysing the semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic features of a subset of
grammatical terms, the demonstratives. It contains a thorough description of
their synchronic behaviour, which permits both a comparison to the Latin data
with new hypotheses on the epigraphic genres in Republican Italy and a
reconstruction of the Italic origins of these terms based on typological
principles. Neither the grammar of Sabellian nor the pragmatic scope of the
Sabellian inscriptions should be considered a priori identical to their Latin
comparanda.
