Ok, lads, let's end it there.  I accept Michael's apology, but I don't want to see my observations put down so readily again.  Michael may not have meant it, but I read a measure contempt in his response.  I may not have letters after my name, but surely my decades of work count for something.  I did, after all, manage to get a limited use of <au> into the SWF place-name policy.

With regard to <oe>, I still maintain that it is not a Kemmynism but was a graph frequently used in historical Cornish.  I understand opposition or resistance to it, but we did adopt <eu>, <-ewgh> and <dhywgh>  which can also be argued as Kemmynisms, although, again, there is plenty of historical precedent for each one.  As for whether place-name evidence can be regarded as "textual Cornish", let's just agree that "tota Cornicitas" should mean just that.  I just think we should allow ourselves more flexibility in our thinking.  We're all after the same goal when all's said and done.

Yet you insist on denying the fact that you come across as being insulting, despite the fact that you do not intend to be so. This should tall you you might want to work on your communicative skills and your wording.
