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.

Subject Language: GuaranĂ­, Paraguayan
Abstract: Paraguayan Guarani has nominal inflectional suffixes with temporal meanings. I challenge the claim that they are nominal tenses (cf. Nordlinger and Sadler 2004), and analyze them as nominal aspects. I present evidence that points to crosslinguistic variation in the way in which noun phrases are temporally interpreted, and address the implications of the existence of languages with nominal temporal markers for theories of temporality and crosslinguistic temporal interpretation.
