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: Case-Marking in Contact
Subtitle: The development and function of case morphology in Gurindji Kriol
Written By: Felicity Meakins
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/cll.39
Series Title: Creole Language Library 39
Description:

Until recently, mixed languages were considered an oddity of contact linguistics,
with debates about whether or not they actually existed stifling much descriptive
work or discussion of their origins. These debates have shifted from questioning
their existence to a focus on their formation, and their social and structural
features. This book aims to advance our understanding of how mixed languages
evolve by introducing a substantial corpus from a newly-described mixed
language, Gurindji Kriol. Gurindji Kriol is spoken by the Gurindji people who live
at Kalkaringi in northern Australia and is the result of pervasive code-switching
practices. Although Gurindji Kriol bears some resemblance to both of its source
languages, it uses the forms from these languages to function within a unique
system. This book focuses on one structural aspect of Gurindji Kriol, case
morphology, which is from Gurindji, but functions in ways that differ from its
source.
