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.

Query Details


Query Subject:   DP as a Phase, Negation/Intonational Marking
Author:   Bert Remijsen
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   DOES ANYBODY KNOW ABOUT LANGUAGES THAT MARK NEGATION BY MEANS OF INTONATION? I FOUND NO REFERENCE TO PROSODIC MARKING OF NEGATION IN DAHL'S 1997 TYPOLOGY OF SENTENCE NEGATION IN 'LINGUISTICS'.
ON THE OTHER HAND, I HAVE COME ACROSS TWO LANGUAGES FOR WHICH IT IS REPORTED - LINDSTROM (2002 - PHD DISS UNIV. OF STOCKHOLM) REPORTS THAT IN THE AUSTRONESIAN LANGUAGE KUOT, A SEGMENTAL MARKER OF NEGATION IS INVARIABLY ACCOMPANIED BY AN UTTERANCE-FINAL FALL-RISE CONTOUR. SECONDLY, ROEMER (1991 'STUDIES IN PAPIAMENTU TONOLOGY') DESCRIBES A COMBINATION OF TOONE SHIFT AND DOWNSTEP, WHICH ACCOMPANIES A SEGMENTAL NEGATION-MARKING MORPHEME IN THE CREOLE PAPIAMENTU.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW OF LANGUAGES IN WHICH NEGATION IS MARKED EXCLUSIVELY BY MEANS OF PROSODY, I.E., IN THE ABSENCE OF A SEGMENTAL (MORPHOLOGICAL OR SYNTACTIC) ENCODING? OR DO YOU KNOW OTHER LANGUAGES SHOWING PHENOMENA WHERE THE MARKING OF NEGATION HAS A SECUNDARY PROSODIC COMPONENT, LIKE KUOT AND PAPIAMENTU? I WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR ANY REPLIES, AND I WILL POST A SUMMARY OF THEM TO THIS LIST.
