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: Outline for a Comparative Grammar of some Algonquian Languages
Subtitle: Ojibway, Cree, Micmac, Natick [Massachusett] and Blackfoot
Written By: Christianus Cornelius Uhlenbeck
Translated By: Joshua Jacob Snider
URL: http://www.amazon.com/Outline-Comparative-Grammar-Algonquian-Languages/dp/0615384021/ref=sr_1_1/187-5080130-2786058?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1379096124&sr=1-1
Description:

This is a translation of a comparative grammar of five Algonquian Native American languages first published in Dutch in 1910. It has been expanded, corrected and improved in the form of translators notes based on much more recent and complete material. It is not a comprehensive grammar, but rather a good solid introduction to most of the major important morphological features of this family and the languages treated. It also includes many bibliographical resources for most of the Algonquian language family, which are geared towards comparative language learning methods.

The two most widely spoken languages of this group, Ojibway (frequently spelled Chippewa, Ojibwa or Ojibwe) and Cree, are both examples of the close knit Central Algonquian group, while Micmac (also spelled Mi'kmaq and Mi'gmaw) and the extinct Natick (also called Massachusett) belong to the Eastern group. The western Blackfoot is usually placed with the Plains Algonquian group, but it it is the most divergent member of the entire family and has roughly as many speakers as Micmac.

It is my hope that a comparative Algonquian grammar will be bound together with a reader similar to those texts currently available for many other language families, but for now I hope this piece will be of some use and help fill this gap.

It is available through all Amazon websites.
