Dear Jonathan,

With regard to your article on Cornish orthography at http://www.newlinguist.co.uk/dialect.html 
  I would like to make the following correction. You say:

"With this in mind, the Cornish Language Partnership & the Kernowek  
group have launched a discussion mailing list, titled Spellyans, where  
enthusiasts can sign up and discuss possible resolutions to these  

The CLP did not co-launch this discussion list. The CLP will use the  
SWF unchanged until a review in 2013, which is fine; they are a  
government body and has other things to care about than the  
Orthography Wars. Those of us involved with Spellyans ('Spelling')  
have worked to identify inconsistencies and errors in the SWF, and we  
have implemented these in Kernowek Standard, an orthography in which  
publications are now beginning to appear.

With best regards,
