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: Linguistic Relativity in SLA
Edited By: ZhaoHong Han

Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Crosslinguistic influence is an established area of second language research,
and as such, it has been subject to extensive scrutiny. Although the field has
come a long way in understanding its general character, many issues still
remain a conundrum, for example, why does transfer appear selective, and why
does transfer never seem to go away for certain linguistic elements? Unlike
most existing studies, which have focused on transfer at the surface form level,
the present volume examines the relationship between thought and language, in
particular thought as shaped by first language development and use, and its
interaction with second language use. The chapters in this collection
conceptually explore and empirically investigate the relevance of Slobin's
Thinking-for-Speaking Hypothesis to adult second language acquisition, offering
compelling and enlightening evidence of the fundamental nature of
crosslinguistic influence in adult second language acquisition.
