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: Cette recherche vise à examiner empiriquement l'idée commune que les Suisses romands parlent lentement. Nous avons comparé, en parole lue, diverses variables temporelles produites par des locuteurs provenant d'une variété régionale française (Brunoy en Ile-de-France) et de deux variétés régionales suisses romandes (Neuchâtel et Nyon), et ce, en tenant compte de l’âge et du sexe des locuteurs. Les résultats montrent, d'une part, que, parmi les diverses variables temporelles, seule la vitesse d'articulation permet de distinguer les locuteurs des trois variétés régionales. D'autre part, ils soulignent le rôle différent, selon la variété régionale, que jouent l’âge et le sexe des locuteurs dans la production de la vitesse d'articulation.
