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: Saami Linguistics
Edited By: Ida Toivonen
Diane C. Nelson
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20288
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 288
Description:

The papers in this volume describe and analyze an array of intriguing
linguistic phenomena as they occur in the Saami languages, ranging from
etymological nativization of loanwords to the formation of deadjectival and
denominal verbs. Saami displays a number of characteristics that are
unusual from a cross-linguistic perspective, including partial agreement on
verbs, a three-way quantity distinction in consonants and spectacular
consonant gradation. The eight papers presented here approach these and
other issues from diverse theoretical perspectives in morphology,
phonology, and syntax. The volume includes an extensive research
bibliography which will be helpful for anyone interested in Saami linguistics.
