> 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.
