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: The Nubi Language of Uganda
Subtitle: An Arabic Creole in Africa
Written By: I. Wellens
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=21551
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

The Nubi language is spoken in Uganda and Kenya. Nubi is Arabic, since
about 90% of its vocabulary is of an Arabic nature. It is often termed a
creole, since many of its structural and developmental features resemble
those of known creoles.

The growth and development of the Nubi language must be situated near Lake
Albert towards the end of the nineteenth century. This period is well
documented and is described at length in the first part. This volume also
provides a detailed description of the Nubi language of Uganda, and it
deals with the development of the language and searches for the relevant
Arabic source dialects.

The book includes more than one thousand examples and several texts,
recorded by the author during two extensive periods of field research.
