    What a shame there isn't any interpretation to accompany this thread. What is the point may I ask? It stands a very good chance of being of the Cornish language that is a fact, but what is the intention behind this kind of approach? In an attempt to promote and gain a little more interest in the Cornish language and yes this thread, would anyone be obliging enough to translate this wording below into Cornish please? Cornish Lament Away from it all now my old body no longer of any use No more tongues with venomous fangs hurling their spite and abuse Kernow was in my heart and Cornish was all that I wanted to be Keep on with the good fight if not for others certainly for me. yc

    It makes a lot more sense YC than your poem. BRITISH IRISH COUNCIL SEMINAR On the 13th of November a delegation from Cornwall consisting of Rael Harvey, Esther Johns, Jenefer Lowe, Rhisiart -Tal-e-bot and Mike Tresidder attended a British Irish Council seminar in Cardiff focused on promoting indigenous, minority and lesser-used languages through early years education. The event provided the attendees the opportunity to work with delegates from across the IML(Indigenous, Minority and lesser-used Languages) work sector in a series of workshops and discussions. (The IMLs the group concentrates on are Irish, Welsh, Gaelic, Scots, Ulster Scots, Manx, Jèrriais, Guernsey French and Cornish). Not only was the event useful to hear about what other people are doing from an early years educational perspective and share good practice, it also allowed the Cornish delegation the opportunity to articulate our unique circumstances to a wider audience. Indeed, we think it's fair to say that, not only was a generosity of spirit demonstrated towards the Cornish experience as a whole, some attendees felt we had practical lessons and experiences that could be of use in their own administrations. ** As an extra, note the similarity between 'Predennek' for British in Kernewek and the place name 'Predannack' on the Lizard Peninsula. Far-reaching historical significance, I would think.

    Great reading. Thanks MapSerpren and Carvath. It is good to see Cornwall participating in the BIC.

  • Carvath  |  February 25 2013, 4:38PM

    You're about as Cornish as a Devonshire dumpling or a pork pie YC. LOL

  • ThomasFlamank  |  February 25 2013, 4:48PM

    @ youngcornwall - the use of the wonderful Cornish language is allowed by forum rules. I strongly suggest you read the rules.

    yc nobody has grasped the idea because the only benefits are to a minority political agenda....where is the support for english based indigenous language ie ***bric or mercian or kentish or west saxon or northumbrian. Does anyone really believe reece talbot has an interest in helping nurture any cultural stimulation outside his celtic clique....lol

    by H_Trevorrow "yc nobody has grasped the idea" Yes I will take the scenic route for a little while on this one, you know about taking a horse to water and all that lol.

  • Carvath  |  February 26 2013, 1:44PM

    H_Trevorrow, there seems to be quite a need for language teaching and appreciation. Rhisiart is the Welsh equivalent of English Richard, not Reece which is an anglicised form of Welsh Rhys.
