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.

Abstract: This case study of immigrant student participation in an advanced college reading course (n=10) revealed social identity as a motivational factor in language learning. Motivation often originated in a gap between current and desired identities, a gap which formal language learning served to close. The student's integrative orientation correlated strongly to desired identification with the L2 community. The study's multi-mode research model included an AMTB survey, interviews, and observation.
