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: Legacies of Colonial English
Subtitle: Studies in Transported Dialects
Edited By: Raymond Hickey
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521830206
Series Title: Studies in English Language
Description:

This collection brings together internationally-renowned scholars to
discuss the role of British dialects in the genesis and subsequent history
of postcolonial Englishes. As a result of colonization, many varieties of
English now exist around the world. Considering the input of Scottish,
English and Irish dialects, they examine a wide range of
Englishes--including those in North and South America, South Africa, Asia,
Australia, and New Zealand. They also explain why many overseas Englishes
still reflect non-standard British usage from the distant past.
