The Ancient Language, and the Dialect of Cornwall, with an Enlarged Glossary of Cornish Provincial Words

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.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Acquisition

Query:   Dear all,

For a project on language learning in bilingual children in Germany, I am looking for native speakers of the following languages to help with stimulus validation:

Albanian
Arabic
Kurdish
Polish
Portuguese (European)
Romani
Russian
Turkish
Vietnamese

I am trying to find monosyllabic items (e.g. [nif]) that are pronounceable but do not mean anything in any of these languages, in order to test the acquisition of new words by mono- and bilingual children (who speak German and one of these languages).

If you can spare 10 minutes and help me with this task, please get in touch by email. I will then send you a spreadsheet with ca. 100 items in IPA. You do not need to have any special knowledge, just be a native speaker of one of the languages above and be able to read the IPA.

Thank you very much in advance!

Best wishes,

Katrin Skoruppa, PhD
