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: Recently, a theory has formed that views conceptually generated images in sequence as a language - a purely visual language - which emerges socially in such literary cultures as "comics." However, more often than not, this form appears in conjunction with that of textual language. In a linguistic light, this can be interpreted as two separate modal structures that intertwine semantically through their mutual interfacing. This piece aims to delineate these interfaces between visual and textual language, and then delve into the varying ways in which separate modalities vie for semantic dominance of the overall communicative act. This involves the examination of how a modality, its syntactic and semantic structures emerge in language usage. Through the paper, a base understanding and vocabulary for interpretation of how text and image interact will be offered and explored.
