Product Description

This is a facsimile reprint of a book originally published early in the 20th century, before the spelling and pronunciation reforms of Common Cornish, so it will look strange to anyone familiar with the modern language. It was a historically important work, citing every Cornish word known from the texts in every variant form and neologisms derived from Welsh and Breton (these are marked with an asterisk). Consequently, this dictionary is not recommended for those who only wish to be part of the modern Cornish language community, but it is a treasure-house of information for those interested in earlier phases of the language.
