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: Research on Politeness in Spanish-Speaking Countries
Edited By: Carmen García
Description:

One of the main contributions of this important book is that it offers a
thorough survey of the theoretical and empirical developments that have
occurred in the area of (im)politeness in the different regions of the
Spanish-speaking world, gathering together overviews by distinguished
scholars. Additionally, the book advances the field with new empirical
research on linguistic (im)politeness, and silence and (im)politeness, in a
range of (non)institutional contexts, as well as new perspectives for the
study of (im)politeness. A closing chapter by the editors provides an
assessment of salient trends in the area and directions for future research.
'Research on Politeness in the Spanish-Speaking World' is essential reading
for senior undergraduates and graduate students in Spanish pragmatics and
Spanish linguistics, sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis. The volume
is also very useful to English-speaking scholars in the general field of
pragmatics who are not proficient in Spanish but require access to these
empirical studies.
