Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817ā€“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.

Title: Some Connections between Linguistic Change and the Written Language: The behavior of speakers aged 3 to 20
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Phonetics
Subject Language: Catalan-Valencian-Balear
Abstract: After the Franco dictatorship, written Catalan started to be taught officially in the schools of Catalonia. This teaching has involved a change in some phonetic, morphological, and lexical habits, especially among speakers schooled in Catalan as a first language. The present study shows a linguistic change process observed in Northwestern Catalan linguistic communities. Its focus is the study of absolute initial prestressed vowels spelled 怈e怉 which have traditionally been uttered with solution [a] in forms such as encara 'yet' or estudi 'study'. The population analyzed is the one that is receiving or has received the biggest influence from written language: speakers between 3 and 20 years of age. The data obtained allows us to observe a phonetic change directly connected to writing.
