In so far as you're not reiterating a sackful of fallacies, clichés, urban legends, and lounge-bar tropes, you seem (in the absence of evidence and argument) to be asserting something vaguely reminiscent of the normal state of symbiosis between languages related by cultural or other ties. So, whatever your point was, you've lost it (whatever it was) somewhere or other.

With the proviso that the variations within Modern Cornish are far more nuanced than the Paytonian School of Cornish Scholarship can grasp, I certainly agree that there doesn't seem to have been so much written by those espousing the principles propagated by Richard Gendall from the mid-Eighties onwards. However, this may merely reflect the fact that I quite simply haven't come across much of it.
