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: Corpus Linguistics: Investigating Language Structure and Use
Written By: Douglas Biber
Susan Conrad
Randi Reppen
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521499577
Series Title: Cambridge Approaches to Linguistics
Description:

This book is about investigating the way people use language in speech and
writing. It introduces the corpus-based approach to the study of language,
based on analysis of large databases of real language examples and
illustrates exciting new findings about language and the different ways
that people speak and write. The book is important both for its
step-by-step descriptions of research methods and for its findings about
grammar and vocabulary, language use, language learning, and differences in
language use across texts and user groups.
