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 paper is concerned with documenting critically endangered and culturally significant aspects of spatial language in MalakMalak, a non-Pama-Nyungan Northern Daly language with eleven identified remaining speakers based in the Daly River Region in Australia. The documentation combines current speaker knowledge collected in fieldwork settings between 2012 and 2013 with historical recordings (Birk, 1971-1973) to identify such areas of knowledge that have been lost over time. As a result, this paper focuses on the intricate relationship between language, culture, landscape, and tradition in the absence of customary community life. It asks whether or not aspects of language may ever be fully documented when speakers no longer live in traditional areas practicing customary cultural life.
