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: Politeness
Written By: Richard J. Watts

Series Title: Key Topics in Sociolinguistics
Description:

Key Topics in Sociolinguistics

This new series consists of accessible yet challenging accounts of the most important issues to consider when examining the relationship between language and society. Written by leading experts, the books in the series are designed to be used in courses and in seminars, and include useful suggestions for further reading and helpful glossaries.

Using a wide range of data from real-life speech situations, this introduction to politeness theory breaks away from the limitations of current models. It argues that the proper object of study in politeness theory must be "common sense" definitions of politeness and impoliteness. Richard Watts concludes that a more appropriate model, based on Bourdieu's concept of social practice, can thus be developed.
