Who cares?

What's far, far worse is the number of ultra Cornishmen who can't use their own language at all.

And make no attempt whatsoever to do so.

Re: Dhyworth Moscow gans kerensa

I think you may be right about "a'gas dynnargh" seeing the most use in the modern language. It is, however, wrong. It should be "a'gas dynnergh". "dynnargh" is the imperative (quite hard to use, given its meaning. A bit like shouting 'greet!") and the noun (which is, on the other hand, quite shoutab...

Re: An Beybel Sans in Kernowek (The Holy Bible in Cornish)

Williams suggested long ago that Nance's 'bybel', a borrowing from Breton 'bibl', was probably incorrect.
He said that one would expect 'bybla' if it had been borrowed from Middle English, but 'beybel', like Welsh 'beibl', if it had been borrowed later.
He thought that the latter was more likely.
