Lowena dhis, Nigel.

Good to have you here. 

‹Mar pleg› is one way of saying "please". "Thank you" would be ‹Meur ras dhewgh (also: dhywgh)› or ‹meur ras dhis› depending on whether you are thanking many persons (the former), or one person (the latter). The former can be used for one person when speaking formally, or politely. In later Cornish the 2nd person plural was used interchangeably with the singular (except with God, who was always addressed as singular). 

I'm in the process of putting together an audio course and have lessons 1 - 23 online. You can access them on:

Alternatively for the first and the two latest lessons:

O.V.D? Please enlighten me; I am, after all, a Cornish language beginner. The more I spend on resources the more inclined to recoup it I will feel. Twisted logic, but it works for me.

BTW: I am a former subscriber to the forum. If you require a re-introduction I will happily provide one. The major change is my working in the Netherlands and residing in Kernow and Österreich
Mar pleg (I think that is 'thank you').

My beginners are enjoying your Oxford Visual Dictionary, too, Jon. We particularly appreciate its Late Cornish content.

I want to congratulate Nicholas on his new book "Geryow Gwir: The lexicon of Revived Cornish", my copy of which I received from Amazon at the weekend.  A lot of time and expertise have clearly gone into this scholarly work. The book is copiously supported with quotations from the texts.
Ol an gwella,
Jon
