This book explains the meanings and origins of many Cornish place names and includes some lessons in Modern Cornish (Kernuack). It is divided into 14 chapters, each of contains details of place names in a particular part of Cornwall together with some Cornish words or phrases, notes on pronunciation and grammar, or details of the history of the Cornish language.
If you're Cornish, have Cornish ancestors or have an interest in Cornwall, you'll find this book a facsinating read.

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.
