About Cornish

Cornish (Kernewek) was once the main language spoken in Cornwall in the south west of Britain. A Celtic language, it became almost extinct in the 18th century – with the fishing community among the last to use it – but was revived in the 20th century. It is now classed as ‘critically endangered’ by UNESCO. It is closely related to Welsh and Breton and also has links to Scottish Gaelic, Manx and Irish. Speakers from the Cornish Language Board (Kesva An Taves Kernewek) worked with uTalk to record the language.
