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.

Title: The Development of the Syntax of Post-Biblical Hebrew
Written By: C. Rabin
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=8814
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This volume is concerned with a historical development of the syntax of
Hebrew in the post-biblical periods, more specifically from the twelfth to
the fifteenth centuries as used in non-artistic prose in Southern France
and Spain, a period in which the language underwent some fundamental
changes and developments. With his superb knowledge of all phases of Hebrew
the author portrays and analyses these developments in relation to Biblical
and Mishnaic Hebrew. This is a highly original and important contribution
to a diachronic description of Hebrew syntax, and undoubtedly a necessary
reading for any serious Hebraist and Semitist.
