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.

Edited By: John Bowden
Nikolaus P. Himmelmann

This book is a collection of papers taking different approaches to the
problems of classifying languages and varieties of languages within the

historical genetic classification are taken in the papers by Mark Donohue

Berg deal with dialectology of Atayal from Taiwan and Muna from southeast
