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: Specialised Languages in the Global Village
Subtitle: A Multi-Perspective Approach
Edited By: Maida Watson
Description:

The status of LSP (Languages for Specialised Purposes) in the contemporary
socio-cultural context is an ongoing central issue of scholarly debate.
"Specialised Languages in the Global Village" examines the impact of
globalisation on intercultural communication within specialised communities
of practice. The contributions to the volume provide linguistically and
pedagogically-informed discussion on modes of communication practice in
professional and institutional domains, frames of social action and the
construction of professional identities. The contributors also address
issues of languages and social entrepreneurship, and the acquisition and
development of linguistic/cultural competence in foreign languages for
specialised purposes. The edition is a valuable resource for researchers in
LSP, specialists in the fields of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and
scholars in the area of rhetoric and composition. It will also be of
interest to professional translators, language editors and language
advisors in the fields of specialised academic/professional communication.
LSP instructors and foreign language teachers will also find informed
guidelines and useful pedagogical proposals for classroom implementation.
