[Spellyans] Hello

Welcome to the list.


This looks like I have missed out in being able to complete my Cornish
language studies in Unified.  I managed to get up to grade three a few years
ago, and later some of grade four.   But a busy life and too many
commitments in the language planning business have meant I have had to make
some priorities.


I had hoped to get to this year's Penseythen and Degol Porthya - but
conflicting commitments at a late juncture ruled that out.


I do think that the Kesva might have gone about this differently and instead
of instituting a final closure date, left those of us already with grade
track record the opportunity to complete when ready.

Subject: [Spellyans] Hello


My name is Delia Brotherton and I am a new subscriber to the Spellyans list.
I am a student of Kernewek currently studying 4th grade Unified with Pat
Miller in Constantine and Ray Chubb in Camborne and hope to take the 4th
grade Kesva exams this summer.  This is the last opportunity for Unified
students to take any Kesva exams so am under self imposed pressure, but it
won't kill me!


Following the Agan Tavas AGM today (Saturday 11th February) I have been
appointed as the Secretary, having been co-opted on to the committee about
six months ago.  I started a new Yeth an Weryn in St Ives while I was a
first grade student and have organised for Agan Tavas three successful
Cornish language weekends in St Ives, the most recent being last weekend in
the run up to St Ives Feast.  I am a musician and, with my husband, formed
Bagas Porthia about six years ago, playing traditional and contemporary
Cornish and Celtic music, and also helped revive the St Ives Guisers.  I
have written two songs in Kernewek as part of my language studies and my
wish is to continue using the language in this way.  With regard to SWF I am
observing developments as I have previously stood in for Ray Chubb at MAGA
Partnership meetings but do not intend to study SWF at least until I have
finished my exams.


I hope this is sufficient introduction to Spellyans members.


Oll an gwella


Dee Brotherton, Porthya
