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: Cet article s'attache à l'analyse approfondie de la périphrase auxiliaire aller / venir + V. infinitif dans un emploi peu documenté que la tradition nomme allure extraordinaire. Il prend appui sur un corpus de 500 occurrences relevé dans divers genres du discours (journalistique, littéraire, conversationnel, électronique). On propose dans un premier temps une description générale du fonctionnement de l’extraordinaire; on explicite ensuite précisément cet effet de sens, avant d'expliquer le mécanisme de sa production.
