Nance was not, in my view, a good linguist. Read Rod Lyon’s chapter ‘Medieval Romantic or Language Visionary’ in Peter Thomas and Derek Williams, Setting Cornwall on its Feet (Francis Boutle 2007) ISBN 978 1 903427 34 7 and you can see what Caradar thought of Nance as a linguist.

I am still at an utter loss as to why Cornish revival was not just simply a continuation of the fantastic work Nance did.
