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.

Readings in African Dialectology and Applied Linguistics is a resource book that covers a wide range of topics on African Dialectology, Dialect-Syntax, Syntax and Phonology, Sociolinguistics, Applied Linguistics and Literary Criticism. It is also an outlet for researchers in the field of microcomparative African Dialectology.

It is divided into four sections, each section containing chapters that address specific thematic issues. Section One contains eight chapters that address issues on African dialect syntax. Section Two has nine chapters which focus on applied linguistics, dialectology and literary criticism. Section Three, which has five chapters, deals with sociolinguistics issues. The last section contains eight chapters; it focuses syntactic and phonological issues. The book is edited by two Nigerian scholars, Felix Abídèmí Fábùnmi and Akeem Ségun Sàláwù, both of the Department of Linguistics and African Languages, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
