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: Systemic Functional Linguistics and Critical Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: Studies in Social Change
Edited By: Lynne Young
Claire Harrison
Description:

This collection of papers by internationally renowned contributors focuses on social change in different settings and through a wide range of voices. It offers a fresh view of both systemic functional linguistics (SFL) and critical discourse analysis (CDA), and looks at the relationship between these approaches to language.

The book is divided into two parts; the theoretical section explores ways to study social, political, and economic transformations, whilst the applied section examines the effects of social change on national and institutional identities.

This volume is the first to make explicit the connections between SFL and CDA, so that novices as well as experienced researchers examining the two fields can more fully understand their interrelationship, and how CDA can usefully draw on analytical tools rooted in SFL.

The book has several aims: to extend the connections between SFL and CDA; to provide analyses of social change that are rooted in llinguistic theory and methodology; to critically analyse a wide-range of discursive material; and finally to offer a broad range of international perspectives on the role of discourse in changing social pratices and patterns.
