“What a shame there isn't any interpretation to accompany this thread. What is the point may I ask? It stands a very good chance of being of the Cornish language that is a fact, but what is the intention behind this kind of approach? In an attempt to promote and gain a little more interest in the Cornish language and yes this thread, would anyone be obliging enough to translate this wording below into Cornish please? Cornish Lament Away from it all now my old body no longer of any use No more tongues with venomous fangs hurling their spite and abuse Kernow was in my heart and Cornish was all that I wanted to be Keep on with the good fight if not for others certainly for me. yc”

“It makes a lot more sense YC than your poem.BRITISH IRISH COUNCIL SEMINAROn the 13th of November adelegation from Cornwall consistingof Rael Harvey, Esther Johns, JeneferLowe, Rhisiart -Tal-e-bot and MikeTresidder attended a British IrishCouncil seminar in Cardiff focused onpromoting indigenous, minority andlesser-used languages through earlyyears education. The event providedthe attendees the opportunity to workwith delegates from across the IML(Indigenous, Minority and lesser-usedLanguages) work sector in a series ofworkshops and discussions.(The IMLs the group concentrates onare Irish, Welsh, Gaelic, Scots, UlsterScots, Manx, Jèrriais, Guernsey Frenchand Cornish).Not only was the event useful to hearabout what other people are doingfrom an early years educationalperspective and share good practice, italso allowed the Cornish delegationthe opportunity to articulate our uniquecircumstances to a wider audience.Indeed, we think it's fair to say that, not only was a generosity of spiritdemonstrated towards the Cornishexperience as a whole, someattendees felt we had practical lessonsand experiences that could be of usein their own administrations.** As an extra, note the similarity between 'Predennek' for British in Kernewek and the place name 'Predannack' on the Lizard Peninsula. Far-reaching historical significance, I would think.”

“yc nobody has grasped the idea because the only benefits are to a minority political agenda....where is the support for english based indigenous language ie ***bric or mercian or kentish or west saxon or northumbrian.
Does anyone really believe reece talbot has an interest in helping nurture any cultural stimulation outside his celtic clique....lol”

“H_Trevorrow, there seems to be quite a need for language teaching and appreciation.Rhisiart is the Welsh equivalent of English Richard, not Reece which is an anglicised form of Welsh Rhys.”
