- Latin, Cornish, Welsh, Breton
- s. xviiex / s. xviiiin
- Welsh manuscripts
Fragment of a comparative vocabulary (Ob–end) of Latin, Welsh, Cornish and ‘Armoric’ (a shorter version of that in Lhuyd’s Archaeologia), with an unfinished list of Latin words (Nadir–end), with occasional equivalents.
Abbott’s description is terse enough to be quoted in full:
- 16" x 11". Fragment of a comparative vocabulary of Latin, Welsh, Cornish, and Armoric, from Ob to the end of the alphabet. This is much less full than the comparative vocabulary in the Archæologia, yet many words are given which are not there.
- The Cornish is generally quoted with Lh. added. Some of the Armoric words appear to have been written by a Frenchman.
- This is followed by a list of Latin words from Nadir to the end of the alphabet, with spaces left for the insertion of Welsh and Armoric words; but many of these spaces have never been filled.
