Cornish Grammar And Supplement

Author: Hal Wyn
Copyright: 1927

Description: 115 pages. This is a must for all students of the Cornish language, a classic.

This book can be thought of as a supplement to Henry Jenner's Handbook of the Cornish Language. Hal Wyn was the pen name of Ralph St Vincent Allin-Collins,  and like Jenner he too claimed he was taught Cornish whilst it was still a living language. Like Jenner and Nance, Hal Wyn was also made a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd. Both Jenner and Nance contributed to this work by Hal Wyn which was privately printed by the author in a very limited number, hence its scarcity these days.

The book is comprised of a series of short stories, broken down with glossary and grammar for each as well as exercises for the student of the language. Because of the poor print quality we had to scan this book at 600DPI and do a lot of manual editing to get nice enough quality, the book is fully searchable in Adobe Acrobat to make it easy to locate the exact word you are looking for, much easier to use than the expensive original if you could locate a copy.
