<t>Karesk, I did post a response of thanks to you, but it seems to gone astray. I ended up buying that copy on eBay with much joy, as it's one of Caradar's major works, and one which I hadn't read. I already had the concluding section translated after Caradar's death by Carer Brynyow (iirc) and whic...

<t>David wrote, "Everything soon will be on E-books anyway, which will solve the problem of who prints where ."<br/> <br/> <br/> Indeed, more publications may well be in that format (although I doubt that "everything" will be; certainly, my books won't stick to that path!). But it also raises the ve...

<t>Truru said to Conan, "This is a pathetically insular attitude."<br/> He went on to say to Eddie-C, "That was a pathetically immature and short-sighted action."<br/> <br/> <br/> What an absolute blessing for the Revival that --amidst this ocean of patheticality-- we have the estimable 'truru', who...

If Mebyon Kernow wanted my vote, they should have offered worthwhile candidates. If they manage to up their game next time, then they'll get it; otherwise, not.

<t>Conan aired his inner Barbarian thus, "For many people living in Cornwall it is politically incorrect to produce Cornish language material outside of Cornwall."<br/> <br/> <br/> Yes, Cornwall has its racist bigots, just like every other part of the United Kingdom. Do tell us, Conan ker, are you o...

<t>NJAW's full name is, to the best of my recollection Nicholas John Anselm Williams.

<t>'Daleks', Tim? Are we having a wee senior fantasy moment here?

<t>Conan really does seem to have a bit of a thing about other guys' tusses, doesn't he? Perhaps, though, he's just aping the other silly 'willy waggling' schoolboy humour shown by one or two of our other fellows here on C24.<br/> <br/> <br/> Just so we're all singing from the same page of the Kama ...

<t>Conan said, "How often do you see dialects of English indicated by English texts? Infrequently because we have a standard for literacy."<br/> <br/> <br/> Wrong. It's actually quite common for an author to indicate that a character originates from some particular province, or country, by changing ...
