Davydh Trethewey ov vy, my a gows Kernewek ha towlenna yn Python.
I am David Trethewey, Cornish speaker, and programmer in Python (mainly).
This website will show my progress on natural language processing tools for Cornish (Kernewek), a Celtic language spoken fluently by several hundred and with a few thousand having some knowledge of the language. In past times, the language was spoken throughout Cornwall but over the centuries the language declined until there were very few speakers by the late 18th century.
I have mostly used Python to code these tools, including the Natural Language Toolkit library.
I also made a series of maps of the mining districts of Cornwall, from various book sources. Here are maps of the various mining districts in Cornwall.
Transcribed records from the National Library of Wales (www.llgc.org.uk/en/collections/activities/research/nlw-data/aberystwyth-shipping-records-dataset) for vessels registered in the port of Aberystwyth. This page details the reading of the data programmatically and plotting some summary data.
