One of the many wonderful and extraordinary aspects of this enigmatic region is the existence of its own language.
Although the Cornish language died out in the 18th century, there has been a resurgence in interest in this ancient language.
Sharing its roots with the Welsh language, the Cornish language pre-dates the roman invasion of Britain.
Cornwall Council’s ten year ‘Cornish Language Strategy’ aims to encourage its use across the community and develop the teaching and learning of the language.
According to the Cornish Guardian, a plan is currently being developed to bring about a wider use of the spoken language. It is already used increasingly across the county in building and street names.
