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: Optimal Communication
Edited By: Reinhardt Blutner
Helen de Hoop
Petra Hendriks
Series Title: Lecture Notes
Description:

This volume explores how the effectiveness of communication is shaped by
aspects of semantics and pragmatics such as compositionality, the role of
the speaker and hearer, and the acquisition of meaning. Optimal
Communication surveys recent research in the fields of syntax, semantics,
and pragmatics, and draws from optimality theory to argue that optimal
meanings result from a compromise between competing constraints. Optimal
Communication will be an invaluable resource for students in cognitive
science, linguistics, and natural language semantics.
