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: Phonetics and Philology
Subtitle: Sound Change in Italic
Written By: Jane Stuart-Smith
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-925773-6
Description:

This book presents an exhaustive treatment of a long-standing problem of Proto-Indo-European and Italic philology, the development of the Proto-Indo-European voiced aspirates in the ancient languages of Italy. In so doing, it tackles a central issue of historical linguistics, the plausibility of explanations for sound change. The book argues that a solution to the problem can only be offered by combining the results of a traditional philological investigation with the resources of a neighbouring discipline, experimental phonetics. It will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of historical and comparative linguistics, the languages of ancient Italy, and Indo-European, as well as phoneticians and phonologists.
