GUEST,mayomick Cornish Nightingale (43) RE: Cornish Nightingale 20 May 09

The song title given in the Kennedy book is "An Eos Whek ". I assume that this translates as Sweet Nightingale . So the Cornish language has (or had) a word for nightingale   . They would hardly have had a word for it if the bird itself wasn't known in Cornwall .I don't think they had any post-modernists back in those days ,did they?
