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.

Book Information


Title: Language Diversity in the Classroom
Written By: John Edwards
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

This book provides comprehensive coverage of language contact in classroom
settings. A thorough analysis of the sources and implications of social
“disadvantage” is presented first, since the nonstandard dialects that
children bring with them to school – and the unfavourable perceptions of
these dialects – have traditionally given rise to educational difficulties.
The persistence of these perceptions is particularly highlighted. More
general issues surrounding the range and implications of language attitudes
are dealt with, as is the important “test case” of Black English. The book
also discusses foreign-language teaching and learning, as well as the
assumptions and intentions underpinning bilingual and multicultural
education. Given its breadth and its style, this book should be of interest
and value to all teachers, as well as to students and researchers concerned
with any aspect of the social life of language.
