> "Desky Kernowek: A complete guide to Cornish" published by Evertype
> Desky Kernowek: A complete guide to Cornish, is aimed at both beginners 
> and the more advanced student. It is available in hardcover and paperback 
> editions.
> Desky Kernowek uses Standard Cornish, an orthography that is at once 
> authentic and wholly phonetic. The whole grammar of Cornish is discussed 
> in Desky Kernowek and both Middle and Late Cornish variants are 
> accommodated. All points of grammar and vocabulary are exemplified by 
> instances from the traditional texts in the original spelling. A key to 
> the exercises is given at the end of the book for those learning Cornish 
> by themselves. Desky Kernowek contains a comprehensive phrase-book taken 
> exclusively from traditional Cornish. It also contains a detailed 
> discussion of initial mutation, and a section on verbal usage. The book 
> contains both Cornish-English and English-Cornish glossaries and a full 
> index of subjects.
> The section on pronunciation and spelling was written by Michael Everson, 
> a leading expert on writing systems. Professor Nicholas Williams, the 
> author of Desky Kernowek, has been described by Philip Payton, Director of 
> the Institute of Cornish Studies of the University of Exeter, as “the 
> foremost scholar of the Cornish language”.
> Publication of Desky Kernowek has been made possible in part by the 
> generous support of Agan Tavas and Cussel an Tavaz Kernûak. It is 
> available in hardcover and paperback editions. See
