Cornish Kernewek Kernowek survival kit

A bluffer's guide to the Cornish Language. It is from <a href="http://www.howlsedhes.co.uk/dallether/dlan0.shtml">this website</a>, which I found to be very handy! The spelling used is Kernewek Kemmyn, except that here, unlike in standard KK, we find /z/ en /s/ to be distinguished. The acute accent indicates main stress, whereas the grave accent indicates secondary stress (Note however, ÿ instead of y-grave). It is recommended to also look at the website, as it puts all these words and sentences a bit more into perspective.
