There are calls for more people to take up the Cornish language.

It is as a new online dictionary is launched.

It translates more than 10, 000 words and tells us how they should be pronounced.

Language experts in the Duchy hope it will help those already learning, and encourage more people to try.

South West MEP Graham Watson, said: "~There are a number of stalwarts who keep the language going, it is not their mother tongue, their mother tongue is normally English, but none the less they learn Cornish and keep the linguistic tradition alive.

"I think learning a language gives you far more than the ability to communicate your ideas. Learning another language gives you an understanding of the culture and the thought processes of the people who speak it."
