<t>There are more Cornish speakers than you know – you are not going to know every one personally. This situation will increase as the language gains speakers. Not every Cornish speaker joins one of the clubs, or sits an exam, or goes to a class. The Internet means anyone from Santiago to Singapore ...

<t>Evertype said:<br/> According to you, I am but a hypocrite. Despite your earlier praise, it seems that your view is that the work that I and others have done on KS is of no value because it hasn't appeared in a time scale that suits your preference. Oh, there's a partial spec available for less t...

<t>Whatever. But until you release a full KS specification, KS will continue to be an orthography used by two people.<br/> <br/> Marhak and Eddie have already asked for a KS specification, and they're more likely to have bought KS SaT, Eddie especially. So they can't have considered it sufficient.<b...

<t>I agree, devolution is the one area MK should focus on, obviously also weighing in on other Cornish issues du jour, so not to seem like a one issue party. It should at least mention UK issues as not to seem insular. Constitutional issues should be left to the pressure groups.<br/> <br/> And is th...

I doubt anyone suggests that every Cornish person is also a nationalist. Most of us probably have varying political feelings within our own family so to generalise about all Cornish people is a little far fetched.
