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: Approaches to the Evolution of Language: Social and Cognitive Bases
Edited By: James R. Hurford
Michael Studdert-Kennedy
Christopher Knight
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521639646
Description:

This is one of the first systematic attempts to bring language within the
neo-Darwinian framework of modern evolutionary theory. 24 co-ordinated
essays by linguists, phoneticians, anthropologists, psychologists and
cognitive scientists explore the origins of the complex structure of human
language, emphasizing its social (as opposed to purely practical) bases,
and showing the mechanisms by which this structure emerges, is maintained,
and develops.
