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: Semantics in Acquisition
Edited By: Veerle van Geenhoven
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4484-4
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

Semantics usually deals with adult language, and language acquisition
usually is studied from the perspective of syntax or from a functional
perspective, but not systematically from a formal semantic one.

This volume contains a collection of writings that focuses on semantic
phenomena and their interpretation in the analysis of the language of a
learner. The variety of phenomena that are addressed is substantial:
temporal aspect and tense, specificity, quantification, scope, finiteness,
focus structure, and focus particles. The number of languages in which
these phenomena are investigated is very large as well: Dutch, English,
German, Inuktitut, Italian, Japanese, and Polish, to name a few. The volume
creates a theoretical as well as an empirical bridge between semantic
research on the one hand and psycholinguistic acquisition studies on the other.
