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: Copies versus Cognates in Bound Morphology
Edited By: Lars Johanson
Martine Irma Robbeets
URL: http://www.brill.nl/copies-versus-cognates-bound-morphology
Series Title: Brill's Studies in Language, Cognition and Culture
Description:

Genealogical linguistics and areal linguistics are rarely treated from an
integrated perspective even if they are twin faces of diachronic linguistics. In
"Copies versus Cognates in Bound Morphology" Lars Johanson and Martine
Robbeets take up this challenge. The result is a wealth of empirical facts and
different theoretical approaches, advanced by internationally renowned
specialists and young scholars whose research is highly pertinent to the
topic.

"Copies versus Cognates in Bound Morphology" puts genealogical and areal
explanation for shared morphology in a balanced perspective and works out
criteria to distinguish between morphological cognates and copies. Lars
Johanson and Martine Robbeets provide nothing less than the foundations for
a new perspective on diachronic linguistics between genealogical and areal
linguistics.
