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:   DEAR COLLEAGUES

I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON A STUDY OF WORD-FORMATION PROCESSES IN ENGLISH. IN

STRESS PATTERNS OF WHICH I CANNOT DETERMINE. THESE WORDS ARE:

BUTOXIDE
DEHYDROGENATUM
ECDYSIS
ELECTROPHORESIS
EMBOURGEOISEMENT
IMIPRAMINE
LUTEOSTERON
OXIME
PALMITATE
PERIDINE
PYRETHRIN

CAN ANYBODY
(I) PPOINT ME TO REFERENCES WHICH PROVIDE THE STRESS PATTERNS OF THESE (AND
SIMILARLY INFREQUENT AND SPECIALISED) WORDS;
(II) GIVE ME A CLUE AS TO HOW WHICH OF THE SYLLABLES OF EACH WORD IS
STRESSED?

THANKS A LOT!
