This is why we need a SWF that is less hierarchic, less prejudiced against those who prefer more traditional forms and has more genuine consensual support.

I can see where Ray is coming from on this. I do wonder if 'apathy' or possible waning enthusiasm for the language is not down to the fact most learners are not high powered linguistics experts and so much of the hotly argued minutiae of things like degrees of stress, etc go right over their heads and the consequent conflicts in orthography and revival 'brands' dissuade folk from investing in a system that might well ultimately be ditched! What is the feeling on the ground, I wonder? Ewan.
