[Spellyans] Interest in Cornish

(I hope this is not a repeat - this computer threw a fit as I was finishing
the last version, and said it had sent it - but I can't find it in the
'sent' file!)

My interest in Cornish dates from 1960 and arises from two motivations:

1. Ancestral: I have Cornish ancestry on the male side, Cornish relatives,
and have spent much time in the County.

2. A longstanding interest in language, from being given a copy of Frederick
Bodmer's 'Loom of Language' when I was 11 years old.

These apart I have a temperamental urge to see things being done right
(that's my Cornish grandfather) and want to see the spelling of our language
made as 'right' as possible in the circumstances.
