Re: The Basque experience in language recovery

It comes with age, Margheg, as you I should think can appreciate. You don't really think Margheg is a good way to represent [ˈmɑɹ(h)ək], do you? Or at the very least started up alternative ventures with their own quite different flavours and outlooks. It's so much easier now after all. Matty Clarke...

Re: The Basque experience in language recovery

So they won't really be addressing the key question for Cornish, which is now to re-establish intergenerational transmission once it has completely broken down. You do what Ray Chubb did. You have children and you speak nothing but Cornish to them. Until Cornish is transmitted intergenerationally b...

Re: BBC Cornwall interview about An Beybel Sans

For example, the sound /o/ (later > /u/ maybe) is written "o" in "a wor" and "dhe godha", but "ù" in "arlùth"; No, because these are pronounced [ə ˈwɔɹ], [ðə ˈgɔðə], [ˈɑɹlʊθ]. Not [ˈɑɹlɔθ]. The sound written "dh" (which is not of course 'traditional') in "dhodho" and "fëdh" is represented by "th" i...

Oh, Keith. It's going to be shooting fish in a barrel. Talk to you the day after tomorrow.

Re: BBC Cornwall interview about An Beybel Sans

Admittedly Tim can be obscure at times, (a poet's prerogative, maybe?) however the two examples you happened upon _bonez_ an _gwruthyl_ are not at all unusual in the actual Cornish texts, composed as far as anyone knows by genuine fully fluent Cornish speakers, the likes of which haven't been seen ...

Mostly his incessant onanism on this forum doesn't cause a reaction. It's all the same old bile over and over again. :roll:

Re: BBC Cornwall interview about An Beybel Sans

All that needs to be said, Tim, is that you didn't do it. The Kesva didn't do it. The Cowethas didn't do it. After four hundred years, it was Nicholas Williams who did it. Oh, sure, Tim. You can pretend horror at the kind of diction Nicholas uses. You can write nearly incomprehensible Cornish with y...

Re: MAGA conference

Thank you for that answer, Evertype. It's even more coy and evasive than your first post about the laptop, but I'm probably over-parsing. Perhaps. Nevertheless I'm sure there's enough there for people to draw their own conclusions. And "Jenny" and anyone else who was at the conference will doubtles...

Re: MAGA conference

That seems to be a very, very, carefully worded response about your laptop, Evertype. Perhaps even coy. I think you're over-parsing. It doesn't actually say that you were taking notes about the Conference itself . No, it doesn't. Of course, if you were taking notes about the Conference then it woul...

Re: MAGA conference

In the afternoon the guest speaker from Jersey taked about what they are doing there to keep their language Jeriais alive and promote it. It was really fascinating and worth listening to but I'm not surew what lessons we can pick up from it. It's probably most about keeping in touch with other mino...

Re: BBC Cornwall interview about An Beybel Sans

This is slightly different, a course book teaching a particular type of Cornish is one thing, a Bible is a whole 'nother. Why? There are two translations of Alice in Cornish, too. They differ greatly from one another (orthography aside). What's the point of having two bibles, both in the same langu...

Re: MAGA conference

There were quite a lot of people there but it's a shame there weren't more because it's a good opportunity to talk to people you don't normally meet, particularly from other language groups. There were SWF, Kemmyn, Unified and Late people there all mixing together without any trouble (apart from th...
