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: El enfoque cooperativo y su idoneidad para la enseñanza-aprendizaje de segundas lenguas y lenguas extranjeras
Written By: Kerwin Anthony Livingstone
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Second Language Teaching 17

Este trabajo es un intento de poner en relieve que el Enfoque Cooperativo es una de las metodologías didácticas más idóneas para la enseñanza-aprendizaje de segundas lenguas (L2) y lenguas extranjeras (LE). El Aprendizaje Cooperativo es la actividad de aprendizaje en grupo organizada de tal manera que el aprendizaje sea dependiente del intercambio socialmente estructurado de información entre aprendices en grupos, y en el que cada aprendiz es responsable de su propio aprendizaje, y es motivado a aumentar el aprendizaje de los demás. Se da un esbozo de los orígenes del Enfoque Cooperativo y las razones por su introducción e inserción en la enseñanza de lenguas. Igualmente, se establecen las características principales del Aprendizaje Cooperativo. Se hace hincapié en la problemática metodológica actual sobre la didáctica de lenguas. Se proporciona una visión panorámica sobre la teoría y tipos de aprendizaje tanto como las actividades de enseñanza en torno al Aprendizaje Cooperativo de Lenguas. En este trabajo se hace hincapié en que el Enfoque Cooperativo es uno de los métodos más idóneos para la adquisición de una L2 y para mejorar la competencia lingüística y comunicativa de los alumnos en función de la lengua que están aprendiendo. Palabras clave: enfoque cooperativo, aprendizaje cooperativo, enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas, trabajo en equipo. This work is an attempt to highlight that the Cooperative Approach is one of the most suitable teaching methodologies for second and foreign language teaching and learning. Cooperative Learning is a learning activity in a group, organised in such a way that learning is dependent on the socially structured exchange of information among learners in groups, and that each learner is responsible for his own learning and is motivated to increase the learning of the others. A sketch is given as it relates to the origin of the Cooperative Method and the reasons for its introduction and insertion in language teaching. Also, the principal characteristics of Cooperative Learning are established. The current methodological problems on language teaching are emphasised. A panoramic vision is provided to us with regard to theories and types of learning as well as teaching activities, all centred on Cooperative Language Learning. In this work, emphasis is made on the fact that the Cooperative Approach is one of the most suitable methods for second and foreign language acquisition and for improving linguistic and communicative competence of the students with respect to the language that they are learning. Keywords: cooperative approach, cooperative learning, teaching-learning of languages, group work.
