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: Jean-Marie Zemb’s philosophical grammar intends to serve epistemological goals and to build a linguistic science that is based on observation and explanation and focused on the deep realms of thought. Nourished by the philosophical and linguistic traditions of France and Germany, the two countries in which he was educated, Zemb is one of the essential French linguists concerned with contemporary epistemology. He can be compared to Eugenio Coseriu. His French-German comparative grammars do not propose a ‘system,’ but instead ‘rectify’ the errors inherited from both earlier and contemporary French and German linguistic theories. This article outlines his epistemological approach and discusses several specific examples. Among the key words of his linguistic oeuvre are ‘archi-lexeme,’ ‘meaning quanta,’ ‘thema,’ ‘rhema,’ and ‘phema.’
