From blog correspondent Dave McLaughlin
The New Testament issued for the first time in Cornish
Or as Gaelic-speaker Dave titled this, 'An Tiomna Nua i gCoirnís...'. (See the cognates with English?) This sister Celtic language became extinct in the 1700s; this is an attempt to revive it. The last living native speaker was a stroppy old woman who'd charge you to listen to her and would become fierce if you didn't put those coins in her palm.
