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.

Description:

Second revised edition now available!

This successful textbook introduces beginning university students of
English to the study of English linguistics. Now updated and expanded, the
second edition features a more detailed discussion of the differences
between British and North American English, and explains the differences in
the two traditions of phonetic transcription.

The major difference between this book and its potential competitors lies
in its hands-on didactic orientation, with a strong focus on linguistic
analysis and argumentation. Language and linguistic theory are approached
from a strictly empirical perspective: given a certain set of data to be
accounted for, theoretical and methodological problems must be solved in
order to analyze and understand the data properly. The book is not written
in the perspective of a particular theoretical framework and draws on
insights from various research traditions. "Introduction to English
Linguistics" concentrates on gaining expertise and analytical skills in the
traditional core areas of linguistics, i.e. phonology, morphology, syntax,
semantics and pragmatics. The final chapter on "Extensions and
applications" widens the perspective to other areas of linguistic research,
such as historical, socio- and psycholinguistics. Each chapter is
accompanied by exercises and suggestions for further reading. A glossary
and an index facilitate access to terms and topics.
