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: Discourse and Context in Language Teaching
Subtitle: A Guide for Language Teachers
Written By: Marianne Celce-Murcia
Elite Olshtain
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521640555
Description:

This book recommends that language teachers incorporate an awareness of
discourse and pragmatics in their teaching if they truly wish to implement
a communicative approach in their classrooms. After two introductory
chapters on discourse and pragmatics, the authors show how a discourse
perspective can enhance the teaching of traditional areas of linguistic
knowledge (pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary) and the teaching of
language processing skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking).
This awareness of discourse is then carried over to curriculum development,
assessment, and classroom research. With discussion questions and
activities at the end of each chapter, this book can be used in methods
courses or in-service training programs.
