I've seen this happen far to often on C24.  I wonder if some of it comes from Forums not being able back up words with emotions/body language e.g.?

Good, the more examples there are, hopefully the more accurate the stats will be!

It'd be interesting to see if more examples of PO fit the language shift map!

I have always thought MK, needs a re-brand... And unfortunately it needs to be in English, but definitely with a catchy Cornish equivalent... not an easy task!

Anybody heard anything back from Lib's or Tory's about the Cornish ministerial position?

Just out of interest... How many place names are there with recorded PO, and where is the furthest east?  I would image if it was beginning to be recorded at the end of the C16 then I would imagine seeing them just east of Truro? is this about right?

<t>I thought an example would help:<br/> <br/> Say you have 6 date ranges...(First date pre PO second date post PO)<br/> <br/> 1505----1562<br/> <br/> 1510----1544<br/> <br/> 1490----1630<br/> <br/> 1499----1575<br/> <br/> 1501----1560<br/> <br/> 1500----1700<br/> <br/> Then the intermediate dates a...

<t>I'm not really a statistician Marhak, But I would guess a reasonable way to get a date would be something like.<br/> <br/> For a given placename showing PO, (assuming normal distribution)<br/> <br/> <br/> Use a date halfway between the pre-preoccluded form and post-preoccluded form.<br/> Add up a...

<t>The second program in the series, had a large section on Humphrey Davy... again, not a mention he was Cornish... however they made quite a bit about Joseph Priestly being a Yorkshire Clergyman. <br/> <br/> However the programs are great, and I guess the focus is not on the nationality of the Scie...

I fully understand Marhak.  However they do have a definite date range... PO occurred between year X and year Y.  It would be interesting, to take some kind of average, or as you said a parish by by parish average.  I'm sure we could work out a more focused PO date...

<t>Is Boorde online anywhere?<br/> <br/> I would have thought that the scantness of the written word and the register used in the MSS i.e. Careful and thought out topics that most people seem to agree were most likely copied from previous documents... would almost certainly rule out finding any PO.....

<t>Marhak, R.E. the green house I would disagree that the colour is not intended! I think that the colour green and the ecological expression are more than just homonyms!  However, you may be highlighting that the Cornish word Glas or Gwyrdh dont have these broader, useful connotations! <br/> <br/> ...

Oh, I fully except all of that.

But Labour said f*ck all... and did even less!  At least these guys have said something!

I'm sure one day DoC will have his comeuppance! or at least William will do better!
