Present continuous in Cornish


#1

I was wondering how to say ‘I’m learning Cornish’ in Cornish. Could someone help translate?


#2

I may be wrong, but how about:

My a wra dyski Kernewek ?


#3

Yth esov vy ow tyski Kernewek. Present continuous is formed by using the ‘long’ form of bos with the particle ow (owth before vowels) and the verbal noun with the hard mutation (provection).

The phrase “My a wra dyski Kernowek.” would be the present habitual or future. This phrase translates “I learn Cornish.”, “I will learn Cornish.” or “I’m going to learn Cornish.”
