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: Über die Sprache der Hottentotten und Buschmänner
Written By: W. Planert
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

Über das Buschmännische breitet sich noch ein tiefes Dunkel, ebenso ist das
Hottentottische nur aus einem Dialekte und daher ungenügend bekannt. Erst als
im Jahre 1889 der Missionssuperintendent Kroenlein seinen „Wortschatz der
Khoi-Khoin“ herausgab, war die Möglichkeit gegeben, ein gründliches Studium
des Hottentottischen zu versuchen (aus der Einleitung). Inhalt: Schrift und
Aussprache (Poppsysmata oder Schnalzlaute, Betonung, Veränderung der
Vokale und Konsonanten),

Zusammenstellung der Dialektformen. Suffix-lehre, Formenlehre, das Nomen-
Verbum, nomen numerale, Postpositionen, Konjunktionen, Adver-bien.
Sprachproben (Re-edition; originally published 1905 in Berlin; written in German)
