Hi again. Im familliar with both orgs, and I have a single contact in both of them -- mystery author, Jill Amadio -- shameless plug to a Sister in Crime. According to her, no one actually speaks Kernewek at first glance, but she's looking deeper. I told her about SSI and she was extrmemly excited to learn about it, about the format, and about how well I thought it worked.
I do have an ill formed plan to start a self-study gathering one day at our local Celtic Arts Center. But I think it would be better if I could lead by example and get a little better at speaking it first. I've been handling some serious life stuff but soon I need to form an action plan to level up.
Is there news from your neck of the woods as to whether the Language Council will get it's funding back? I dont want to go down a political rabbit hole, but I saw some press in recent months about finding being granted, but talk of a strategic plan or budget amount seemed kind of etherial, in the national press anyway. Maybe insiders know more. Maybe they'll fund an SSi Level II. Maybe I can level up by starting a kickstarter and contacting every California Celt in ... California.
Does gwella in 'an gwella' sound simillar to 'gwelles?'
OAG, right back at ya.
