Abstract:

The Cornish dialect stemmed from the influence of English on the declining Cornish language, and contained words from both languages. 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. Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English, and annotated with examples, etymological information and literary citations, the work is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life. The word list is supplemented by a history of Cornish and the Cornish dialect, showing similarities with the vocabulary of Chaucer, as well as with Welsh and Greek. Also included is an appendix with information about Dolly Pentreath, the last native speaker of Cornish, and a list of writers who had worked on the Cornish language and dialect. Jago's English-Cornish Dictionary (1887) is also reissued in this series.

Preface; The decline of the ancient Cornish language; On the remains of the ancient Cornish language; A few specimens of the ancient Cornish language; The provincial dialect of Cornwall; Words in the Cornish dialect; Addenda; Curious spellings of the names of drugs, etc.; Appendix on Dolly Pentreath; Names of writers on Cornish dialect, etc.
