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: Die Grundlagen der Griechischen Syntax
Written By: Berthold Delbrück
Description:

In this fourth part of his general work on syntax, published in 1879, Berthold
Delbrück (1842–1922), the German scholar remembered for his contribution to
the study of the syntax in Indo-European languages (his three-volume
Vergleichende Syntax der indogermanischen Sprachen is also reissued in this
series), concentrates on the syntax of ancient Greek. His focus is deliberately
broad as he seeks to engage classicists who are interested in linguistics or in
how the Greek language was actually used, rather than in highly specialised
case studies. In twelve chapters, Delbrück guides the reader through the
gender and case of nouns, and explains some features seen as peculiarities of
Homeric Greek which in fact demonstrate its kinship as an Indo-European
language with the Vedic language of the Hindu scriptures. He also covers the
tenses and moods of verbs, prepositions, pronouns and particles, and word
order.
