The Celtic League's magazine Carn is now online. Some matters of interest to readers of this list concern Kernowek Kebmyn or Common Cornish.

If you want to see how George changed his mind on tj/dj go to http://www.celticleague.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Carn%2068%20Wunter%201989_90.pdf page 16. According to George, "This should remove the chief obstacle to the adoption of Kernewek Kemmmyn [sic] by the supporters of Unified Cornish."

If you want an account (in Welsh) of George espousing dialect in Cornish go to http://www.celticleague.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Carn%2066%20Summer%201989.pdf page 11. Note that later he changed his mind about dialect, which is why instead of an [s]~[dʒ] dialect alternation in words like wosa/woja he now suggests that there was [ʒ] only in these words (effectively wozha).  Of course he was right in the first place.
