Nigel Haywood has written to me about the reported statement which was printed without any context at all. He wrote" I love the Cornish language an I studied the traditional language for four years, it was the Unesco report about endangered laguages which declared Traditional Cornish extinct, but the same cannot be said for REVIVED CORNISH whose numbers seem to be contantly growing.There are a lot of people working hard to revive the Cornish language, which, as I said to you, is fascinating and quite beautiful. It gained status under the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages in 2002. My point was, simply, that I do not have any role in the revival process. So while Cornish died out in the 18th Century, and there are no areas of Cornish speaking comparable with eg the Gaeltacht for Irish, or large parts of Wales for Welsh, that's not the whole story!"
