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: Ritual Texts of the Last Traditional Practitioners of Nanwang Puyuma
Written By: Josiane Cauquelin
URL: http://www.ling.sinica.edu.tw/english/v7-2-review.asp-v_id=35.htm
Series Title: Language and Linguistics Monograph Series A23
Description:

Since 1983, Josiane Cauquelin has been engaged in an ethnographic study of
Puyuma society and cultural traditions. This research led her to
investigate their religious practices in greater depth and allowed her to
record ritual texts from both male and female officiants. She rapidly came
to understand, however, that to proceed with shamanistic studies she had to
analyze the ritual language. Her first study was presented in 1993, at the
third seminar of the International Society for Shamanic Research in
Budapest and was published in 1995. This book represents a first attempt at
providing a comprehensive ethnolinguistic study of invocations in Nanwang
Puyuma.
