Dai, and others!

Out of pure interest, but do you know the status of Friesian orthography and indeed the state of that language in general?
I ask because it has been mentioned in connection with a series of crime novels I have been reading, set in Hamburg and featuring a half Scot/half German detective!

Ewan.

  Lived for a time in Karpfham i R.,Niederbayern, five km from the Mili/Muichgrenze.  also had a lot of contact with Zwiesel, so I expect there's some influence there, too.  Karpfham, with about 500 inhabitants, holds Bavaria's their largest Bierfest (after Minga and Straubing.  What part of Austria are you from?
  I'm fascinated by problems of orthography, and am a great believer (with some qualifications) in historic orthography as opposed to phonetic orthography. This is still an issue in e.g Occitan, Romansch.

    I couldn't resist, thanks group, for indulging. I'm actually Austrian, but our dialects are sufficiently close, especially along the border… How did you get to learn Bavarian?

          Sh'mae bawb! I'm called Dai Hawkins and speak fluent English, Welsh and Bavarian. I have a great interest in orthography, particularly in minority languages, and over the years have followed the debates on this topic with regard to Cornish and Occitan with great interest.
          My chief connection with Cornish is that I often visited Cornwall in the 1940s and 50s (my great-aunt lived in Lanner, and there were family friends in Par), and spent a short time as a pupil in Tywardreath junior school.
