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.
Everybody is familiar with language, but this certainly does not mean that everybody has a sufficient understanding of language. Usually we try to objectivize our knowledge of language by using terminology. In the process we easily forget that language can also be concretized revealingly by means of images or symbols. This form of objectivization is particularly suitable for grasping the diverse and pragmatic potential functions of language. Moreover, images can also provide good access to the substructures of our terminology- based knowledge of language.
