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: A Natural History of Infixation
Written By: Alan C.L Yu
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199279388
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

The first cross-linguistic study of infixation explores its prosodic,
phonological, and morphological characteristics, considers its diverse
functions, and formulates a general theory to explain the rules and
constraints by which it is governed. It examines 154 infixation patterns
from over a hundred languages, compares their formal properties and
explores their diachronic origins. The book will interest phonologists,
morphologists, typologists, and historical linguists of all theoretical
persuasions.
