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.

Language Acquisition in Bilingual and Atypical Populations: Focus on Developmental Comparisons Guest-Edited by Tania Ionin
This Special Issue investigates the theoretical mechanisms behind language development in different populations, addressing such empirical research questions as: • How does age affect linguistic development? • Is cross-linguistic transfer attested for different types of populations, such as simultaneous vs. sequential bilinguals? • Is there a critical period for language acquisition, and does it affect development as well as ultimate attainment? • What are the relative contributions of cognitive vs. linguistic maturity in the development of children with SLI, cognitive impairments or autism? • Is the source of language difficulty or language breakdown different across populations?
