The Commission found that "a new consensus stands out as a better alternative than choosing any of the four existing orthographies, and we will strongly suggest to the Cornish community the imperative of arriving at a consensus."

There is a number of choices available. People will simply have to choose. It will be interesting to see what influence Desky Kernowek has on people's decisions. It is certainly more comprehensive than any previous grammar.
