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:   HI ALL--

I'M TRYING TO COMPILE INFORMATION ON LANGUAGES THAT ALLOW TWO-MEMBER FRICATIVE-INITIAL CONSONANT CLUSTERS IN WORD-INITIAL POSITION. SPECIFICALLY, I'M INTERESTED IN CASES WHERE THE FRICATIVES ARE SOMETHING OTHER THAN /S/ THAT COMBINE WITH NASALS AND OBSTRUENTS.

ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL, EVEN IF IT'S JUST THE NAME OF A LANGUAGE, BUT I WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATIVE IF YOU HAVE INNFORMATION REGARDING WHICH PARTICULAR CLUSTERS ARE ALLOWED IN THE LANGUAGE.

THANKS,
LISA DAVIDSON
