Meur ras dhys, Mina.


This is much as I surmised.  I too have no idea who Esme is.  Could be a man or a woman. (woman definitely if Esmee.)


>From those whom I know it does seem heavily weighted towards Kemmyn – and even more so for those who want SWF to be more Kemmyn-like than Kemmyn-lite.


If they are finding a chair from amongst their number – perhaps Esme is that person.  In any event it will need the judgement of Solomon to sort this out. 


What is needed above all are robust and clear rules, and a strong chair to keep to them.  The team also need to have recourse to outside specialists.

In reply to Ken's email.

Vanessa was originally  a 'unified' speaker, Albert B is  of course SWF, Neil was 'Modern' Cornish. Jory a diehard Kemmyn speaker. Polin Prys and particularly Maureen  Pierce are both 'fanatic' kemmyn speakers and   very very anti Modern.     Both ladies told me just a few weeks ago that they were not in favour of the SWF even though they had to support it,  and I gathered they would prefer the SWF to be further inclined towards Kemmyn. I don't know Esme - have not even heard her name.Hope that helps. 


This review board is very light weight. Can someone explain please what its job will be.  Apart from Albert and possibly Neil, no one is 

anywhere close to being a linguist. It will be Treyarnon all over again, with no "real" experts on the committee.  


I suggest that something be done about the composition of this board. Regards Mina

A gowetha,


The message below from Jenefer gives details of the SWF review group.  Can you identify which aspects of the Cornish language movement each of these names represents?
