Rhymes and Glossary of Cornish Words
This book has 55 pages of rhymes, which are known as Randigal Rhymes, randigal being the dialect word for nonsensical. This is followed by a few pages of charms as used by local pellars. Next comes a few pages of local proverbs and phrases and rhymes used by children whilst at play. A very exhaustive Cornish dialect glossary of 70 pages follows, these are words that Joseph Thomas met with personally rather than gathering them secondhand. Lastly is a list of subscribers.
This book is sure to delight anyone who has an interest in the lives of the common man & woman in the Cornwall of the late 1800s.
