5.0 out of 5 stars A book to celebrate the Cornish language!, 28 Feb. 2010
By 
This review is from: Cornish Place Names and Language (Paperback)
An excellent publication that explains the meaning of many Cornish terms & place names. eg.Penzance (Pen Sans = Holy Headland.) (Redruth = Red Ford, 'Ruth' meaning Red & the 'Red' or Res meaning Ford. Coloured from tin mine workings) It's a wonder the Cornish language still survives after the English imposed their English Prayer Book onto a mainly monoglot Cornish speaking nation 1549!

Well done Mr Weatherhill.
