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: Cognitive Linguistics and Second Language Learning
Subtitle: Theoretical Basics and Experimental Evidence
Written By: Andrea Tyler
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415802505/
Description:

This book illustrates the ways that cognitive linguistics, a relatively new
paradigm in language studies, can illuminate and facilitate language research
and teaching. The first part of the book introduces the basics of cognitive
linguistic theory in a way that is geared toward second language teachers and
researchers. The second part of the book provides experimental evidence of the
usefulness of applying cognitive linguistics to the teaching of English. Included
is a thorough review of the existing literature on cognitive linguistic applications
to teaching and cognitive linguistic-based experiments. Three chapters report
original experiments which focus on teaching modals, prepositions and
syntactic constructions, elements of English that learners tend to find
challenging. A chapter on “future directions” reports on an innovative analysis of
English conditionals. Pedagogical aids such as diagrams and sample exercises
round out this pioneering and innovative text.
