Cornish for the Emmets
The Movyans Skolyow Meythrin (Nursery Schools Movement) is part of a revival of the language, with roadsigns in the county in Cornish and English, and the news in Cornish on the local BBC website.
It is thought that 300 people speak Cornish fluently....Rhisiart Tal-e-bot, a teacher from Wales who will run the nursery, said: “Traditionally the language was seen as for academics or people with beards and the community of bards. Now there’s more of a cultural connection. Emilie Champliaud, 30, from France, a founder of the movement, is sending her daughter to the crèche. She wants to set up Cornish nursery schools across the county.
Sonya Anjari moved back to her native Cornwall from London last year. She said: “When I was growing up, Cornish was seen as a bit insular. Now it’s part of a movement, and is easy to make it part of everyday life.”
Sorry Ms Anjari Cornish is still "a bit insular", apart from the BBC I doubt many London employers value an ability to speak it. And why is the nursery being run by people from Wales and France. Maybe the locals aren't so keen?
