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: Multimodality, Cognition, and Experimental Literature
Written By: Alison Gibbons
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415873611/
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Multimodality
Description:

Since the turn of the millennium, there has seen an increase in the inclusion of
typography, graphics and illustration in fiction. This book engages with visual
and multimodal devices in twenty-first century literature, exploring canonical
authors like Mark Z. Danielewski and Jonathan Safran Foer alongside
experimental fringe writers such as Steve Tomasula, to uncover an embodied
textual aesthetics in the information age. Bringing together multimodality and
cognition in an innovative study of how readers engage with challenging
literature, this book makes a significant contribution to the debates surrounding
multimodal design and multimodal reading. Drawing on cognitive linguistics,
cognitive psychology, neuroscience, semiotics, visual perception, visual
communication, and multimodal analysis, Gibbons provides a sophisticated set
of critical tools for analysing the cognitive impact of multimodal literature.
