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: L'Argot au XXe siècle
Subtitle: Édition inversée et raisonnée du dictionnaire français-argot
Written By: Aristide Bruant
Léon de Bercy
Edited By: Denis Delaplace
Series Title: Classiques de l'argot et du jargon, 3

L'Argot au XXe siècle est un dictionnaire français-argot signé par Aristide Bruant et réalisé avant tout par Léon de Bercy. Seule une édition inversée (argot-français) et raisonnée pouvait restituer avec précision ce panorama lexical; en replaçant l'ouvrage dans la lignée de ses prédécesseurs et en mettant mieux en valeur son apport, la présente édition facilitera en outre aux lecteurs l'accès à de nombreux passages littéraires qui, du XVe siècle à nos jours, se sont alimentés aux ressources d'expressivité offertes par l'argot. This reverse (slang-French) and critical dictionary is vital to understand a great many literary texts from the 15th century to the present day which are nourished by the expressive resources provided by slang.
