Weekend Reflections Cornwall
Click to enlarge please!
Cornwall is a peninsula in the south west of Great Britain. The Cornish consider themselves not to be English. They are Celts and try to revive their language. Popularly it is claimed that the last native speaker of Cornish was the Mousehole resident Dolly Pentreath, who died in 1777. Notwithstanding her reported last words, "Me ne vidn kewsel Sowsnek!" ("I will not speak English!"), she spoke at least some English as well as fluent Cornish and may well have been one of the last to do so before the revival of the language in the 20th century.
