Subject: Media: BBC: revived Cornish

Under the headline "Back from the dead: UK's new language", the BBC
News website talks about Cornish becoming an official language, and
the arguments about language purism - should they choose Modern
Cornish, Unified Cornish or Common Cornish as the standard?...

Some sound files of spoken Cornish are included.
