Yes, Mary, I have taught Cornish to ordinary people who are not
university students. I have also taught linguistics to university
students.Ol an gwellaJon

  If you think that there are only two sounds, "i" and "e" then why not
  write "y" for all your dotted things and "i" for i and un-dotted y?
  Isn't that a common sense solution. I really can't see you selling
  all these accents that nobody knows how to type. Why are you all so
  keen on making things complicated? I'm sorry to say it, but the
  expression "too clever by half" does often come to mind. How many of
  you have been to a normal Cornish class here in Cornwall? Have any of
  you ever taught Cornish to 'ordinary people', not university students

  Sorry, not trying to be rude, but you do all seem to be going around
  in circles.
