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.

Book Information

   

Title: Thinking Syntactically
Subtitle: A Guide to Argumentation and Analysis
Written By: Liliane Haegeman
Series Title: Blackwell Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Thinking Syntactically takes a new approach to teaching introductory
students the skills of relating data to theory and theory to data. The main
goal of the book is to create a mindset for scientific thinking and gives
students a heightened sensitivity to language that empowers them to go
beyond the material taught in class. Though generative in spirit, this
textbook does not focus on teaching the details of a specific theoretical
approach, but rather enables students to understand and evaluate different
approaches more easily.

The book is structured around a wide range of exercises that use clear and
compelling logic to build arguments and lead up to theoretical proposals.
Each step is conceptually and empirically motivated to cultivate the
argumentation skills of the reader. Using data drawn from current media
sources including newspapers and novels, Liliane Haegeman helps students
formulate and test hypotheses.
