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: Second Language Acquisition Abroad
Subtitle: The LDS Missionary Experience
Edited By: Lynne Hansen
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/sibil.45
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 45
Description:

This volume brings together for the first time a collection of studies devoted to
missionary language learning and retention. Introductory chapters provide
historical perspectives on this population and on language teaching philosophy
and practice in the LDS tradition. The empirical studies which follow are divided
into two sections, the first examining mission language acquisition by English-
speaking missionaries abroad, the second focusing on post-mission language
attrition. These chapters by internationally known scholars offer cutting-edge
research using a number of different target languages in addressing various
issues in second language development. Finally, a comprehensive bibliography
of sources on mission languages is included. The readership of this pioneering
work is expected to extend beyond specialists in study abroad and missionary
language training to a broader audience of applied linguists, educators, and
students interested in language acquisition and attrition. In addition, the book
offers useful insights to adults who want to maintain a second language.
