Translation game

Post by Unikorn » 23 Jun 2006, 02:20

Ok - here is one I have played with for ages....

In my signature is something like a Welsh saying  - Speak your truth, truth against the world

Would anyone like to play with this concept in Cornish?

on a funny note, I bought a book years ago called "the quest"....and at the beginning of a ritual they said "Y Gwir yn erbyn y byd" and at the end they said "Y Gwin yn Erbyn y Byd"....(the wine against the world) :-) I wonder if that was a typo or not
