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.
This is the first general introduction to the new emerging field of literacy studies. It brings recent developments together in a coherent manner, by showing how new research has contributed to our understanding of literacy practices in a range of settings. The book explores the competing definitions of literacy in contemporary society, and examines the theories of language and of learning which underpin new views of literacy. The book is intended as an introduction to literacy studies for the student or general reader.
