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: Exploring English Grammar
Subtitle: From formal to functional
Written By: Caroline Coffin
Jim Donohue
Sarah North
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415478168
Description:

This engaging textbook bridges the gap between traditional and functional
grammar. Starting with a traditional approach, students will develop a firm
grasp of traditional tools for analysis and learn how SFG (Systemic
Functional Grammar) can be used to enrich the traditional formal approach.

Using a problem-solving approach, readers explore how grammatical
structures function in different contexts by using a wide variety of
thought-provoking and motivating texts including advertisements, cartoons,
phone calls and chatroom dialogue. Each chapter focuses on a real world
issue or problem that can be investigated linguistically, such as
"mis"-translation or problems arising from a communication disorder. By
working on these problems, students will become equipped to understand and
analyze formal and functional grammar in different genres and styles.

With usable and accessible activities throughout, Exploring English Grammar
is ideal for upper undergraduate and postgraduate students of English
language and linguistics.
