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: Handbook of Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition
Edited By: Jill de Villiers
Thomas Roeper
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/linguistics/book/978-94-007-1687-2?changeHeader
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

Modern linguistic theory has been based on the promise of explaining how
language acquisition can occur so rapidly with such subtlety, and with both
surprising uniformity and diversity across languages. This handbook provides a
summary and assessment of how far that promise has been fulfilled, exploring
core concepts in acquisition theory, including notions of the initial state,
parameters, triggering theory, the role of competition and frequency, and many
others, across a variety of syntactic topics that have formed the central
domains of investigation and debate. These topics are treated from the unique
perspective of central actors in each domain who have helped shape the
research agenda. The authors have presented a summary of the data, the
theories under discussion, and their own best assessments of where each
domain stands. Providing as well the agenda for future work in the field showing
both particular needs and general directions that should be pursued in the
coming decades.
