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: Metaphor and Mills
Subtitle: Figurative Language in Business and Economics
Edited By: Honesto Herrera-Soler

Series Title: Applications of Cognitive Linguistics [ACL] 19
Description:

While the role of metaphor in economics and business has produced multiple
research articles, no comprehensive book-length study has yet appeared.
The present book is a timely attempt to fill this gap, giving a global coverage
of the role of metaphor in business and economics. It spans time (from
Classical Greece to the current business network meeting-room), space (from
Europe through the Americas to Asia), cultures and languages (from
continental European languages, Brazilian Portuguese to Chinese).

The theoretical grounding of the book is the Conceptual Theory of Metaphor
taken in a dynamic sense as evolving with on-going research. The theory is
thus used, adapted and refined in accordance with the evidence provided.
Metaphor is shown to be theory constitutive in the elaboration of economic
thinking down through the ages while, at the same time, the emphasis on
evidence open to historical, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic considerations
align with the current notion of situatedness.

The book is a rich source of information for researchers and students in the
fields of Metaphor Studies, Economics, Discourse Analysis, and
Communication Studies, among others.
