[Spellyans] final -y in verbal nouns

I am still at an utter loss as to why Cornish revival was not just simply a continuation of the fantastic work Nance did. It would be so far on now if all these divisive and disparate efforts had used that base, however flawed, and taken it forward, adding consistency and modern terms for today’s users.


Probably sounds very idealistic and simplistic…..but….!

Please do not judge us on our web sites! Perhaps it would be better not to have one at all. I am tearing my hair out because I know the Cussul website is dreadfully out of date. The problem is time and expertise. My son keeps trying to explain to me how to update it but I forget! Due to Covid we have not been sitting down together. Also he is very busy running his new masters course in Indy Gaming (whatever that is!) at Falmouth University. As Neil says, we have left dear Richard Gendall in the past. You obviously didn't see his final dictionary, Nicholas, which we did not adopt, as being too extremely Lhuydian.

The site in question is not the Cussul's official site and should disappear. It was created c.2007 by Gus Williams and has not been maintained. Michael kindly paid for it but we did not get our act together and keep it up-to-date. The information is outdated and therefore somewhat embarrassing.
