Wikipedia in Cornish

A while back I stumbled ‘pon a curious URL –

That’s right – there’s a Kernewek Wikipedia! It currently has 1,288 articles, and will hopefully grow.

A lot of people might be thinking “what’s the point”, but it’s very important for the Cornish language. It gives Cornish speakers a place to compile articles in the language, and it’s a perfect place for people who want to learn to go and have a read of a good body of material.

It gives Cornish/Kernewek/Kernowek (call it what you will) exposure on the web. The language nearly died out, and it’s wonderful to see a resurgence of interest that’s making this a truly living language once again. A Cornish Wikipedia is a truly noble project in my (admittedly Cornish) eye..
