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.

Title: Analysing Sociolinguistic Variation
Written By: Sali A Tagliamonte
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521771153
Series Title: Key Topics in Sociolinguistics
Description:

The study of how language varies in social context, and how it can be
analyzed and accounted for, are the key goals of sociolinguistics. Until
now, however, the actual tools and methods have been largely passed on
through 'word of mouth', rather than being formally documented. This is the
first comprehensive 'how to' guide to the formal analysis of
sociolinguistic variation. It shows step-by-step how the analysis is
carried out, leading the reader through every stage of a research project
from start to finish.

Topics covered include fieldwork, data organization and management,
analysis and interpretation, presenting research results, and writing up a
paper. Practical and informal, the book contains all the information
needed to conduct a fully-fledged sociolinguistic investigation, and
includes exercises, checklists, references and insider tips. It is set to
become an essential resource for students, researchers and fieldworkers
embarking on research projects in sociolinguistics.
