There is one thing you do not understand Eddie, and that is irony or parody, you just do not get it, do you.

Re: Here, Reevesey... Here, boy,... Come on...

"Reclaiming the high ground", as you put it, Reeves, sounds so awfully military, don't you know. It's the sort of thing snipers do to facilitate fire in enfilade against the foe. In the face of such a threat from a known enemy like yourself, I think we'll need defence in defilade. As for your plain...

Re: Spellyans

Reeves ranted: Over on that [Spellyans] list interesting debate, which is fine, if only they would just leave personal names out of it, already Keith Bailey has been insulted, It's difficult to see how such a (in his own delicately chosen words) "devious, lying, cheating little sh1t-bag" could poss...

Re: Here, Reevesey... Here, boy,... Come on...

So we see the return of the more measured Reeves persona, david. The tone may be less aggressive, but the creature behind it is the same. The logic as poor and the reasoning as weak. Pray tell, oh ignorant Reeves, which group of learners should they base their orthography on? Nyaaaaaa, haaaa, haaa,...

Re: Spellyans

Over on that list interesting debate, which is fine, if only they would just leave personal names out of it, already Keith Bailey has been insulted, and of course Ken George, who now after years of being accused of basing KK on Breton, is now being accused of basing it on Welsh, and today Loveday wa...

Re: Spellyans

There is a current discussion on the Spellyans list about the use of 'th' and 'dh' should the revived language of the 21st Century, really be based strictly on the scribal spelling of the 15th Century, ( no other language does ), or should we base our orthography on current usage of actual Cornish s...

Re: Spellyans

Re: Spellyans

Put it this way, maybe some do have the Thomas & Williams edition, although not many have mentioned it, but some have said they do not have it as it is too expensive, and as you say I very much doubt they would have Ken George's edition, which any scholar should buy for comparison, Now Stephen R, ha...
