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: Language, Discourse and Power in African American Culture
Written By: Marcyliena Morgan
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521806712
Series Title: Studies in the Social and Cultural Foundations of Language, 20
Description:

African American language is central to the teaching of linguistics and
language in the United States, and this book, in the series Studies in the
Social and Cultural Foundations of Language, is aimed specifically at upper
level undergraduates and graduates. It covers the entire field - grammar,
speech, and verbal genres, and it also discusses the various historical
strands that need to be identified in order to understand the development
of African American English. The first section deals with the social and
cultural history of the American South, the second with urban and northern
black popular culture, and the third with policy issues. Morgan examines
the language within the context of the changing and complex African
American and general American speech communities, and their culture,
politics, art and institutions. She also covers the current heated
political and educational debates about the status of the African American
dialect.
