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: The Kaso English to Italian (Phonemic) Dictionary
Subtitle: A one-to-one relationship of letters to sounds for assistance with pronunciation
Written By: Adolph Caso
URL: http://www.brandenbooks.com
Description:

The immediate goal of this Dictionary is twofold:
1) Implement the last phase in establishing a one-to-one relationship
between Italian phonemes (sounds) and graphemes (letters of the alphabet).
2) Implement the first phase in establishing a one-to-one relationship
between English phonemes and graphemes, and make English easier to
read, to spell and to pronounce (the word to spell does not really exist in
Italian).

This Dictionary can be used by any individual wishing to acquire or
improve English and Italian language skills. It serves as a quick reference for
standard spelling of English and Italian words, and offers suggestions on how
to better grasp the pronunciation of the two languages. Because of the
proposed changes, the Dictionary would also serve as a tool in developing
better reading and writing skills, allowing the user to simultaneously look at
four columns of words in their standard English/Italian translations, together
with their transcribed English/Italian forms wherein the stress of each
transcribed word is accented. In addition, each Italian word has either
masculine or feminine, singular or plural endings. In the Dictionary, the
endings appear in italics after each word. The top of each odd page carries a
guide on pronouncing phonemes such as /c/ /k/ /j/ /g/ etc.
