European Parliament Moves to Protect The Cornish Language (Kernewek)

Under the headline "European Parliament's call to Protect Endangered Cornish Language", the website "thisisCornwall" reports on actions to be taken that will strengthen efforts to revive the Cornish tongue. The article states: "The European Parliament is to call on governments to do more to preserve regional languages such as Cornish, which is described as endangered."  This action follows a UNESCO report which also cites the status of Cornish.

The article quotes Dan Rogerson, Member of Parliament representing North Cornwall and campaigner for the Cornish language: "It is my belief that the Cornish language is intrinsically worth supporting and encouraging - but it also brings benefits to the region in terms of cultural tourism and raising the status of Cornwall."
