w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Cornwall</st1:place></st1:City> – where Ben
Fogle interview a Mike Paynter on an open-top bus. Made the point well that
Cornish is not dead, and is in fact on the up – but I wanted to question
his pronounciation of the word he used for small – he said something
sounding like ‘bo ‘un’ or ‘bo wun’. I have
mutliple possible spellings of the word from different orthographies, but none
of which could be construed to haver this pronounciation:<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>
