I have started an article at Ulbha, which is very short. I have been trying to get one in each of the Celtic languages. All the best and thanks... 13:33 9 Du 2007 (UTC)

Cornish standard[pennfenten]

Can we get the entire site changed to the new Single Written Form announced November 2007? This would certainly encourage me to start learning the language a bit more. -- 20:49, 24 Du 2007 (UTC)

I think you would encounter quite some opposal if you wanted to change the entire site. However, for a start, you could add a welcome text in Single Written Form to Template:Wikipediawelcome. - Troy 23:58, 8 Kevardhu 2007 (UTC)
No new form was announced last November. The details of the single written form have not even been finalized yet (February). But yes, I aim to switch to the SWF as quickly as possible. By the bye, the main page will need to be moved to Pennfolen now (unless I'm sore mistook). yn-medh Owen. 19:24, 5 Hwevrer 2008 (UTC)

It's a deliberate reticence on my part. I'm not contributing much because I know I'll probably have to change over to the new Standard Written Form once it's finalized. That was supposed to have been done by last Christmas, so life has been on hold here for a long time! ☮ yn-medh Owen. 21:08, 5 Ebryl 2008 (UTC)

You should update the List of Wikipedias on Pennfolen. Many Wikipedias listed as 5 000 and more have already reached 50 000 articles since last revision. For example, Czech Wikipedia has 110 255 articles right now. --Majkl.tenkrat 17:23, 28 Hedra 2008 (UTC)

Survey on this wikipedia[pennfenten]

Hi, I'm sorry, but I cannot speak Kernowek. I therefore write in English, if it is okay. I am from Germany, Bremen, and I am studying linguistics and I have a seminar on language ausbau. This is, when a language doesn't have enough words to express all the modern things and it gets then upgrated with new expressions to fulfill it. And I want to study how Wikipedia can help on that and this is why I doing those surveys. I have two questions for you: 1. What do you think is the contribution of Wikipedia that your languages gets beter developped and gets new expressions for modern things, 2. How do you build new words, are there certain patterns or methods? (And would you be so kind and show me, where you are discussing on new words?) I would be really thankful, if there came some meanings and answers together. Thank you very much, Sincerely Zylbath 17:07, 13 Gwydngala 2011 (UTC)

Front page design method?[pennfenten]

Sorry for the English, but would anyone be able to tell me the method that was used to achieve that background image on the front page (which crops itself as you zoom in, and de-crops as you zoom out)? Gott wisst (kescows) 04:09, 14 Ebrel 2013 (UTC)

It's just a table that's been assigned a CSS class in MediaWiki:Common.css specifying a background image. --Moon (kescows) 12:24, 18 Ebrel 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Gott wisst (kescows) 01:02, 9 Me 2013 (UTC)


Members of your community should see the WikiLang Wikimedia sister project proposal. It would be a wiki dedicated to language preservation and documentation. Gott wisst (kescows) 01:02, 9 Me 2013 (UTC)

I agree. Its goals are language documentation, revitalisation, and preservation. I'm sure some members of this community would be interested because Cornish is a great example of a revitalized language. PiRSquared17 (kescows) 01:34, 11 Me 2013 (UTC)

Dynnergh or Dynergh[pennfenten]

What is the standard form now that Cornish has the SWF, is it A'gas Dynnergh as written on the main page or A'gas Dynergh as I see written everywhere else?? --Stardsen (keskows) 01:15, 26 Gortheren 2015 (UTC)
