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.

Book Information

   

Title: Context and Appropriateness
Subtitle: Micro meets macro
Edited By: Anita Fetzer
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20162
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 162
Description:

This book departs from the premise that context and appropriateness
represent complex relational configurations which can no longer be
conceived as analytic primes but rather require the accommodation of micro
and macro perspectives to capture their inherent dynamism. The edited
volume presents a collection of papers which examine the connectedness
between context and appropriateness from interdisciplinary perspectives.
The papers use different theoretical frameworks, such as situation theory,
speech act theory, cognitive pragmatics, sociopragmatics, discourse
analysis, argumentation theory and functional linguistics. They reflect
current moves in pragmatics and discourse analysis to cross disciplinary
and methodological boundaries by integrating relevant premises and
insights, in particular cognition, negotiation of meaning, sequentiality,
recipient design and genre.
