Message 1: New Welsh bulletin board

Date: Fri, 13 Nov 92 16:11:36 GMNew Welsh bulletin board
From: Briony Williams <brionycstr.edinburgh.ac.uk>
Subject: New Welsh bulletin board

A new Welsh bulletin board has just been launched. It may also cover Breton
and Cornish, and is a sister list to GAELIC-L (for Irish, Scottish and Manx
Gaelic). The following is the charter, followed by the list's address.

 WELSH-L
 -------
The WELSH-L bulletin board aims to foster the amicable discussion of
questions of the Welsh language, Welsh culture, history, and politics,
and to offer a forum for speakers and learners of the Welsh language.
Both Welsh and English may be used.

Users are encouraged to exchange their opinions in Welsh, if they can, and
special consideration may be given to Welsh learners expressing themselves
in Welsh.

The emphasis will be on Welsh as a living language, and Welsh culture as
actually lived out in Wales at the present day. Discussions of Celtic myth in
general, the relationship between Celtic paganism and Anglo-Saxon Wicca, etc.
will probably find a more ready audience on the CELTIC-L bulletin board at
IRLEARN.UCD.IE.

If there is an interest in expanding the range of topics to include
discussion in and about the language and culture of Welsh's close sister
languages, Breton and Cornish, WELSH-L will be able to serve as a forum
for that as well.
