Some recent Cornish developments on the Internet to report.  The first is a great new portal to some authentic Cornish culture. Just about everything is here under you finger tips to explore. Food, festivals, sport, institutions, language....I could go on. Well done to those involved!
 ------------------------------   Next, what a good idea, a Cornish language forum where all the interminable squabbling about orthographies is outlawed. Only positive and constructive comments, in Cornish or English, welcome. If you've every fancied learning one of Europe's oldest languages this new forum will prove a useful resource.

(English translation) Here's a new attempt to create a forum in and about the Cornish language - while leaving the spelling wars out of the game... Keskowsva an Gernewegva is a space where every learner, teacher or fluent speaker of Cornish can discuss all matters related to the language *except one* (the war between spelling systems). In order to join, you don't need to give your name(s), use any single orthography, or tread any official party line. Let's just help one another and the learners. Too many people have been scared away by the in-fighting in the past. The Link: Keskowsva an Gernewegva ------------------------------   Finally a new blog on Cornish cultural and community news called Cornwall Info has been launched by a local company. Perfect for keeping up-to-date on events in our little Cornish Duchy. The Link: Cornwall Info
