SPEAK CORNISH WEEK / SEYTHEN KEWSEL KERNEWEK

Speak Cornish Week is back and to celebrate we thought we’d share some phrases to try when you visit Cornwall this summer.

Holyewgh an Howl. Holyewgh agas kolonn | Follow the Sun. Follow your heart
Kewgh gans agas teylu ha kewgh dhe’n howlsedhes | Go with your families and go west
Eson ni ena hwath? | Are we there yet?
Esowgh war dy’gol? | Are you on holiday?
A wren ni mos dhe’n treth? | Shall we go to the beach?
Mir orth henna! Gorholyon-golya! | Look at that! Sailing ships!
Kewgh dhe howlsedhes, pergherinyon | Go west, pilgrims.
Yth eson ni ow kerdhes hyns an arvor | We’re walking the coast path.
Agas gweles war an treth | See you on the beach!

It’s a beautiful language and the number of people speaking it again is growing rapidly every year, thanks to organisations like MAGA.  You can find out more about Speak Cornish Week and how they celebrate Cornwall’s linguistic heritage, here.
