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.
The Linguistic Bibliography is by far the most comprehensive bibliographic reference work in the field. This volume contains up-to-date and extensive indexes of names, languages, and subjects.

Language Planning and Language Rights
This issue looks into language rights and language planning in their dichotomy between the national and transnational context. As culturally and socially determined phenomena both are undergoing changes via Europeanisation and globalisation processes. This has implications for language planning across all domains. We welcome theoretical and empirical studies that consider (but are in their focus not limited to):
- The concept of linguistic rights for language planning; - Language planning debates and policies as increasingly influenced by international language rights or linguistic human rights frameworks; - Implications of EU policy on minority language rights for language planning; - Impacts of official policies supporting the linguistic rights of communities for future planning
Please send abstracts to the editor for this issue, Dr Gabrielle Hogan-Brun at G.Hogan-Brun@bristol.ac.uk.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 30 January 2014. The deadline for receipt of the final papers is 15 June 2014.
