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.

Book Information

   

Title: Recontextualizing Context
Subtitle: Grammaticality meets appropriateness
Written By: Anita Fetzer
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P_bns_121
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 121
Description:

In the humanities and social sciences, context is one of those terms which is frequently used and frequently referred to, but hardly made explicit.
This book proposes a model for describing the multifaceted connectedness between language and language use, and between cognitive context, linguistic context, social context and sociocultural context and their underlying principles of well-formedness, grammaticality, acceptability and appropriateness. Combining a range of theoretical frameworks in linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and philosophy of language, Fetzer goes beyond the unilateral conception of speech and argues for a dialogue outlook on natural-language communication based on dialogue principles and dialogue categories. The most important ones are cooperation, joint production, micro and macro communicative intentions, micro and macro validity claims, co-suppositions, dialogue-common ground and communicative genre.
