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: The Ontology of Language
Subtitle: Properties, Individuals and Discourse
Written By: Chris Fox
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=1575862336
Series Title: Center for the Study of Language and Information Publication Lecture Notes, 105
Description:

The book offers contributions to a number of topics in semantics, while at
the same time providing an engaging discussion of key foundational issues
and of what Property Theory can contribute to them. The book starts from a
version of Property Theory which stems out of a combination of the lambda
calculus with Aczel’s Frege structures (a combination originally developed
by Raymond Turner). Fox improves on it and substantially extends it with
original applications to plurals and mass nouns, to ‘intensional
individuals’ and to the dynamics of discourse. Some useful appendixes on
further extensions and alternatives are added. While being formally highly
sophisticated, it manages to give a sense of the elegance and flexibility
of the underlying theory. This volume should be of interest to researchers
engaged in the cognitive science arena.
