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.

Description:

Jeju Language and Tales from the Edge of the Korean Peninsula

Jieun Kiaer
University of Oxford

This is the first book to be written in English about the Jeju language, a living language still spoken on Jeju Island, situated to the south of the Korean peninsula. As such, this book will appeal to those interested in Korean linguistics as well as those interested in the study of rare and endangered languages.

Organised into a preliminary section on the language of Jeju itself, before an extensive look at the Jeju language as captured in the stories spoken on the island, along with modern Korean and English translations, this book offers a cultural, as well as linguistic, window onto the history of what was once written off as the wilds to the south of Korea, fit only for exiles. A volcanic island subject to intense winds and surging oceanic currents, the geography of Jeju Island shapes its language, as this book shows. Situated between Korea, China and Japan, the language of Jeju is a melting pot of various cultural influences. For stories of dragons, stones, female divers and more, read on.
