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: Language Matters
Subtitle: Communication, Culture, and Identity
Edited By: Sik Hung Ng
Christopher N. Candlin
Chi Yue Chiu
Description:

Language matters greatly in almost every aspect of human behaviour and
experience. Neurally and culturally humans are powerfully equipped to
acquire language and use it for a variety of cognitive and social purposes.
While the stress of this volume is more on the social purpose of language
use, its cognitive development will also be discussed. This book comprises
20 chapters which are an extension of the interflow of ideas at the 8th
International Conference on Language and Social Psychology held in Hong
Kong, 2003.

Most of the chapters herein are selected from the 110 Conference
presentations that have been screened by reviewers. Key issues are explored
in four areas: (I) Communication, (II) Cultural Processes, (III) Social
Identity, and (IV) Communicating Culture and Identity in Natural Social
Settings.

This volume covers a diverse set of topics. Many real-life illustrations of
the interaction of culture, identity and communication could be found. They
include gender and intergenerational communication; language and ethnic
identity; social identity within a multigenerational community of women;
language, tourism and globalization; and communicating in mentoring
programs and family conflicts.
