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.

Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar 67
Description:

This book contains 14 articles by Teun Hoekstra (1953-1998) on core issues
in syntactic theory. Some articles focus on the structure of DP, others on
the structure of the sentence as a whole, while others still deal
explicitly with the parallels between the two. The papers are distributed
over four sections: "Argument structure," "T-chains," "The morpho-syntax of
verbal and nominal projections," and "Small clauses". More than half of the
articles in this book are published here for the first time or appear for
the first time in English.

Hoekstra's work is characterized by a fundamental interest in the central
questions of syntactic theory, most notably the relation between argument
structure and X-bar structure. This concentrated interest led to a deep
understanding of the notion of transitivity, with respect to both the
status of the external argument and that of the internal argument, where
"status" refers to both the content and the licensing. In this collection
of papers, Hoekstra reports on his insights in these matters.

As far as content and licensing of the external argument is concerned, this
collection contains papers on the relation between passives and their
active counterparts, the parallels between possessives and transitives and
the differences and similarities between past participles and infinitives.
As to the internal argument, we find papers addressing sentential
complementation, verbal affixation and resultatives. And there is a whole
section on tense, and its role in keeping the sentence together.

One of the papers in this collection is Hoekstra's classic, but hitherto
unpublished "Small clauses everywhere" (more than 70 pages), which
summarizes Hoekstra's views on such issues as resultatives, particle verbs
and double object constructions.
