La Kornalingvo Hodiaŭ Tempo:

The Celtic language of Cornish, once spoke in southwestern England, expired abruptly in 1777 when its last living speaker died. Reports of its death may have been exaggerated, however.

Cornish has made a comeback in recent years.
Using surviving written documents, descendants of Cornish speakers began to learn the language and even teach it to their children.
Road signs began appearing in Cornish and English. Now about 2,000 people speak Cornish.
