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.

Academic Paper

Title: Système des démonstratifs médiévaux et exemples de stratégies communicatives
Author: Céline Guillot
Institution: (personal interest - not currently working at a university)
Linguistic Field: Semantics
Subject Language: French
Abstract: Notre recherche porte sur la valeur sémantique des deux séries de démonstratifs médiévaux, CIST et CIL, aux 12 et 13 siècles. En nous fondant sur la théorie de la sphère personnelle du locuteur, nous montrons que l'usage des deux paradigmes médiévaux repose sur les stratégies communicatives du locuteur, qui se positionne par rapport à son allocutaire en choisissant d'utiliser telle ou telle forme. Pour étayer notre hypothèse, nous étudions plus spécifiquement les SN démonstratifs prédicatifs en français médiéval. Nous montrons également que notre approche permet de mieux comprendre certains effets du démonstratif du français moderne.
