Cornish (Kernewek)

The Cornish language (in Cornish: Kernewek/Kernowek in Standard Written Form; also written Kernewek in UC and KK, Kernowek in UCR and Kernowek Standard, Curnoack in RLC) is one of the Brythonic group of Celtic languages. The language continued to function as a community language in parts of Cornwall until the late 18th century, and there have been attempts to revive the language since the early 20th century.

Cornish on

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Cornish you may search by any of the following terms:
British Britain Cornish Cornwall Curnoack England English Great Isles Kernewek Kernowek Kingdom UK United

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages. The traveller  may not be precisely certain which language is in use, and can search using other  terms such as "English''.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of  cauliflower, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Cornish cauliflower' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so other searches, such as 'English' should result in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
