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.

URL: http://www.lingref.com/cpp/hel-lex/2005/index.html
Series Title: Cascadilla Proceedings Project
Description:

This volume contains 18 papers selected from the 2005 Symposium on New
Approaches in English Historical Lexis (HEL-LEX), which was held in
Helsinki in 2005. The papers eventually read at the symposium, a majority
of which appear here, were a combination of many interests, from Old and
Middle English to issues in cognitive semantics and problems of
lexicographical practice. The plenary papers by Gabriele Stein and Ian
Lancashire deal at length with neglected 16th century lexicographers,
Richard Howlet (Huloet) and John Rastell. The plenary paper by Zoltán
Kövecses offers a broad account of theoretical issues in cognitive
semantics which relate to metaphor and words for emotion. The complete
table of contents showing the broad range of papers is available at
http://www.lingref.com/cpp/hel-lex/2005/index.html along with abstracts and
the complete papers in PDF format.

This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, an
imprint of Cascadilla Press. Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings
Project are published in library binding. There is also free web access to
all of the papers in the proceedings through our web site at lingref.com.
