I've changed the heading so that Jenny doesn't need to panic every
time that she sees it.
Andrew is making a good point here. School children are not stupid.
I remember being told by a friend who taught a little Cornish in a
school using SWF that when he introduced 'chi' he was asked why is it
that we see it all around us spelt 'chy'?
Clearly there are two groups of adult Cornish users which are split
about 50/50 between those who want to imitate the Cornish of our
ancestors and those who want a totally logical orthography. We have
no indication of what the split would be amongst children. Is there a
child psychologist on this list?
