[Spellyans] Is there a future for the SWF?

Hi, Delia!

Well, I am with you 100% on this. I have intermittently been doing UC/UCr for years, with work and other pressures more recently allowing me to fall back on my Cornish commitment! 
I think the UC is for now the best decision, being the oldest established revived form, with all the history behind it. However I also liked UCr and have lots of material in it, and of course the recent new Bible tips me in favour of doing that version! 
Hopefully a final, working form will emerge in the not too distant future that we can all invest in with real confidence, instead of this nagging uncertainty we'll have to start yet again from scratch! 

Oll an gwella,

  For me your posting hits the nail right on the head. I am a mature student who was captivated by the thought that my Cornish ancestors may have spoken the language and decided to learn it myself.  I have no particular linguistic expertise and although I find the exchanges fascinating they often go right over my head. I realise of course why such exchanges are important and shall therefore wait until a decision has been made, hopefully by those who have the knowledge and authority to do so, and just get on with it.

  All my teachers have been generous with their time and encouragement but there has at times been a definite undercurrent of frustration, but I can ignore most of it.  Some students find it impossible to ignore and fall by the wayside, and although in some cases it may just be an excuse the bickering can definately erode one's enthusiasm.

  I shall stick with UC and see what happens, that has been the advice to me from all sides all along and I have not been made to feel particularly uncomfortable at any time.  However, I feel more positive about the future of UC/UCr that I did a couple of years ago.

  Oll an gwella
