[Spellyans] Is there a future for the SWF?

A gowetha,

 

Gaelic practice is to use same typeface and letter size, but to give
precedence to the senior language.   On public signage different colours are
conventionally used.  On green backgrounds: Gaelic in yellow and English in
white.  On white backgrounds: Gaelic in green and English in black.

 

This has proved effective and non-controversial.   It provides an easily
recognised quick access for the driver to focus on the preferred language.

And as it was until at least April 10 2012.

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.
