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: In this paper, we investigate the application of degemination in the speech of 14 children between the ages of 1:6 to 4:0 years old, from Porto Alegre city, in Rio Grande do Sul. We verify the application of degemination by these children. We analyzed the production of/L/such a rule in the scope of phonology and phonetics, in unstressed vowels followed by other unstressed vowels, stressed vowels followed by unstressed ones, and unstressed vowels followed by unstressed ones. The methodology used consisted in the listening of the speech of eight children between the ages of 1:6 to 2:3 years old. Such recordings belong to INIFONO e AQUIFONO, part of PUCRS's CEAAL. Furthermore, the speech of six other children, between the ages of 2:4 to 4:0 years old were analyzed using an instrument created by the authors based on Yavas, Hernandorena and Lamprencht (1991). Our results point out that children generally produced such phenomenon whenever the context of application was fulfilled.
