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: Comparative Grammar of the Modern Aryan Languages of India Volume 2
Subtitle: To Wit, Hindi, Panjabi, Sindhi, Gujarati, Marathi, Oriya, and Bangali
Written By: John Beames
Description:

The Indo-Aryan language family is a branch of the Indo-European phylum, and
includes Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, Kashmiri and Gujarati. First published in
1875, this three-volume comparative grammar of the family was written by the
British civil servant John Beames (1837–1902). From 1866 he spent twelve
years in India, during which he gathered data for what he intended to be the first
comprehensive and accurate Indo-Aryan grammar. Volume 2 focuses on nouns
and pronouns. It begins by looking at the stems and suffixes that form Indo-
Aryan nouns, and compares their systems of inflection for gender, number,
possession and case. It moves on to explore their pronoun systems, showing
how they operate in terms of interrogatives, reciprocals, indefinites and
demonstratives, and how person is expressed. Beames' findings remain central
to the work of general linguists, grammarians and language typologists.
