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.

The book develops a corpus-induced approach to lexical semantics. Within the scope of an examination of the core claims of previous collocation studies, the author embeds the notion of the “combinatory profile” in a methodological and analytical framework. He then provides case studies of lexical-syntactical combinatorics for substantives that indicate action disposition in French and German.
