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: Reduplication
Subtitle: Doubling in Morphology
Written By: Sharon Inkelas
Cheryl Zoll
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521806497
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics, 106
Description:

This groundbreaking new study takes a novel approach to reduplication, a
phenomenon whereby languages use repetition to create new words. Sharon
Inkelas and Cheryl Zoll argue that the driving force in reduplication is
identity at the morphosyntactic, not the phonological level, and present a
new model of reduplication - Morphological Doubling Theory - that derives
the full range of reduplication patterns. This approach shifts the focus
away from the relatively small number of cases of phonological
overapplication and underapplication, which have played a major role in
earlier studies, to the larger class of cases where base and reduplicant
diverge phonologically. The authors conclude by arguing for a theoretical
shift in phonology, which entails more attention to word structure. As well
as presenting the authors' pioneering work, this book also provides a
much-needed overview of reduplication, the study of which has become one of
the most contentious in modern phonological theory.
