Cornish

Excellent news for Cornish – after decades of factionalism and infighting between the various different reconstructions of the language (Modern Cornish, Unified Cornish, Unified Cornish Revised, Kernewek Dasunys, Kernewek Kemmyn, Kernowak Standard, Cornish People’s Front, People’s Front of Cornwall), negotiations have finally resulted in a new Standard Written Form of the language.

Of course, those of us with a less prescriptivist bent may wonder why such a thing needs to exist to get EU funding (as the last paragraph of the Reg news item claims).
