[Spellyans] Is there a future for the SWF?

The complaints about confusion is a lot of balderdash. I have personally witnessed tourists coming out of Pezance Station and delighted to see the bi-lingual welcome sign! 
I've also seen folk fascinated in Mousehole, when they read the Dolly Pentreath plaque. 
If folk do object they must be pathetically small-minded, and very easily intimidated if they think English ascendancy is going to crumble in the face of a few public signs, respecting, if nothing else, the native culture of a place!

  One of the comments that was made was that the two forms were causing confusion to visitors.  I haven't seen the original sign were the two forms in the same script?

  I have always thought that the best way to avoid confusion is to use different type scripts for each version as is done in Ireland.

    When (not if) the prominent bilingual sign is restored, you will be pleased to know that the Signage Panel has agreed that it should read:  PEDN AN WLAS, yes, with the pre-occlusion.  I have managed to get a policy agreed that pre-occlusion in place-names will be written where it is historically found.  Not an easy achievement when you consider that the Signage Panel and its active advisors consists of 4 KK-SWF/K users; one who takes a "broad church" view (Rod Lyon), and myself, the only traditional Cornish representative.
