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: The Amazonian Languages
Edited By: R. M. W. Dixon

URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521570212
Description:

The Amazon Basin is the least known and the most complex linguistic region
in the world today. It is the home of some 300 languages many of which
(often incompletely documented and mostly endangered) show properties that
constitute exceptions to received ideas about linguistic universals. This
book is the first in English to provide an accessible overview of this rich
and exciting linguistic area. It will provide a basis for further research
on Amazonian languages as well as a point of entry to important data for
theoretical linguists.
