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.

Book Information

   

Title: Of Grammar, Words, and Verses
Subtitle: In honor of Carlos Piera
Edited By: Esther Torrego
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lfab.8
Series Title: Language Faculty and Beyond 8
Description:

This book offers new work by some major figures in the field of linguistics,
addressing old debates from the perspective of current explanatory grammatical
theory. These include paradigmatic relations among words, and agreeing
adjectives and their grammatical source. Covering a broad range of empirical
domains, the contributors of this volume examine the role of Economy in syntax
and in syntactic interfaces with phonology and semantics, and their implications
for processing. The evidence is taken from a great variety of languages,
including Arabic dialects, Basque, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German,
Latin, and Spanish. Two chapters on metrics complete honoring Carlos Piera’s
longstanding scholarship in linguistic theory within Spain and abroad.
