<t><br/> Eddie-C said:<br/> <br/> A question does arise though, about when we'll hear an official response from the various organisations that represent the different groups within the Revival.<br/> But both the Kesva and the Cowethas seem to have been less forthcoming in the past -- hopefully that ...

<t><br/> Eddie-C said:<br/> [quote=FlammNew]From my Kemmyn viewpoint I don't see much in KD that needs changing, what I would like to see is a tying up of some loose ends, e.g. specifying which of what are currently variants should be used (e.g. use and drop ), and preferably deciding that pre-occlu...

<t>"dhe'n gallos sawson" is Unified Cornish, or UC as it's usually called here.<br/> But it's not good Cornish. "gallos" means "power, control, ability" - I guess you meant something like "control"?
