Reeves said to Taran, "Your point is ??"

 

The word you're struggling for, goky, is "obvious".

<t>'Sean', a sermon on Cornish phonology sounds a touch inappropriate from someone who has to ask the meaning of very basic words such as 'pella' and 'es'. Such a question suggests that you:<br/> <br/> (a) don't know much Cornish, and <br/> <br/> (b) haven't bothered to buy a Cornish dictionary or g...

<t>From memory, the -as suffix makes a word masculine in Cornish (just as the cognate Welsh -ad suffix does),  so as Morvil says, there'd be no lenition. Perhaps for added clarity, I'd be inclined to write the words hyphenated:<br/> <br/> lo-de : teaspoon<br/> <br/> loas-te : teaspoonful<br/> <br/> ...

<t>Am I getting this right: KS uses the circumflex to denote alternation between <ow> and <ew> words, while (iirc) it uses the diaeresis to denote alternation between <bys/bes> words.<br/> <br/>  <br/> <br/> Sorry, but as a long-time supporter of KS, and a student of languages for over half a centur...

<t>That sounds sensibly pragmatic. Certainly diacritics do add precision to an orthography, but it's questionable whether one always needs to have such a degree of precision when writing/reading.<br/> <br/>  <br/> <br/> For instance, in this sentence: "Gwell yu genef gwyn ruth es gwyn gwyn" UC reade...

<t>Actually, Tibm/Timm, 'Aberplymm' has only been part of its name to those of the fake-Cornish KK idiolect. Cornish writers who use that name prefer to spell it 'Aberplym'.<br/> <br/>  <br/> <br/> The gratuitous terminal double consonant suggests either gemination (which afaik is never heard) or pr...

<t>Keith, I'm impressed with your Word Power : yet again, you've come up with a word that those dullards at the Oxford Dictionary offices have completely overlooked.<br/> <br/>  <br/> <br/> If one looks at the older meaning of the word 'quite', we see that in can mean 'wholly' or 'completely'l So yo...

<t>Well, I'm puzzled. Here we have Keith waving in front of us the huge vision of a "grand anti-KK coalition", which has to be a pretty impressively large group of "coalitionists" to be called "grand", don't you think?<br/> <br/>  <br/> <br/> Yet he also alleges that:<br/> <br/> -- hardly anyone too...

<t>Sorry?
