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.

Book Information


Title: Münsterländische Nachlassinventare aus der Frühen Neuzeit
Subtitle: Edition mit Einleitung und Registern
Edited By: Markus Denkler

Nachlassinventare eröffnen dem Sprachhistoriker zahlreiche Perspektiven für Analysen der Variation und Dynamik von Sprache. Die im Buch versammelten 308 Texte stammen aus dem Münsterland und geben detaillierte Einblicke in den lang andauernden und komplexen Prozess des Schreibsprachenwechsels vom Niederdeutschen zum Hochdeutschen. Darüber hinaus machen sie den Wandel von Textmustern, an denen sich Schreiber beim Verfassen und Leser beim Rezipieren der Texte orientieren, greifbar. Neben der Forschung kann auch der akademische Unterricht von der Textsammlung profitieren.
