<t>Hi everyone<br/> <br/> I am looking for a book that is in both English and Cornish, and also has audio of someone saying it in Cornish (preferably a West Cornwall accent, a bit like Rod Lyon's or Dan Prohaska's)<br/> <br/> This would be vital for my Cornish studies<br/> <br/> Thanks everyone<br/>...

<t>I agree with Goky. If those few keep coming back and argueing, then nothing will be done.<br/> <br/> If the Maga translations were totally free, and if they advertised themselves, I think that they would be used a lot more with a lot more bi-lingual items.<br/> <br/> As a young person, some of th...

<t>I agree Goky. Our words and their words (in English) are completely different. <br/> <br/> Firstly you have the creation and discovery of new things - which lead to new names.<br/> <br/> Secondly, you have slang, abbreviations an "in" words, as well as the spread of dialect (for example - in Span...

@ The question about we being able to speak to 1720's Cornish speakers

I doubt that even we, as native speakers of English, could talk in ENGLISH to someone from that era. I am no expert - but I am pretty sure language has changed alot in the course of 300 years.
