In 2008, the Cornish Language Partnership recorded a series of Cornish speakers talking about their experiences of using the language, as well as how they learnt it, and issues they felt were important. We intend to carry out similar interviews in 2019, with the intention of building up an oral history archive of speakers every 10 years to document observations on how the Cornish language community has changed. You can access both the recordings of these speakers, and PDFs of the relevant transcripts.
