Are there any Cornish nurseries? Surely this must be the first step in creating a viable living language.

Actually, I have got wind that there is an attempt to set one up just now. I hope it is successful.

A good model might be Mooinjer Veggey in the Isle of Man.

If you were looking for something of Cornwall shattering importance to get behind following the missed target of the CFF then how about working to facilitate the opening and running of Cornish/English bilingual preschool establishments in the Duchy.


The first steps have been taken and the website is here at Movyans Skolyow Meythrin: http://www.movyans-skolyow-meythrin.net/


There's a facebook group to join as well.


The reintroduction of Cornish into our communities has begun.

Good on you.

Up til now, Cornish has been the only Celtic language without this. It has worked wonders for Quebecois French, Hebrew, Basque and many other languages.

The children will grow up with it as a natural language, rather than a learnt one, and that will help Cornish become a real living language. I know one or two - Gwenno Saunders etc - have been down that road, but they can't be that common. You'll probably have to get plenty of volunteers to get it off the ground.

Some Scottish stuff -

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
