HELP! Do you speak Welsh??

Do you speak Welsh??

If you speak Welsh and/or are familiar with the rise and fall of the number of fluent Welsh speakers over that last century/decade/whenever... I have a huge favor to ask!

The Harpist is completing her senior project on the question of how a language flourishes or fails, looking at several factors (government support, political factors, national identity, etc.) and MUST interview someone who has experience and/or expertise in this area.

She thought she possibly had someone... and they are continent hopping and will not be (or don't want to be) available for the interview...

IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS.... PLEASE leave me a comment with your contact info (email please?) and I'll be in touch with you ASAP!

We would be really, REALLY grateful!

Lorna might be able to help you. Oh anyone I know she might be able to speak it or she would know someone that could.

I had a Welsh seminary classmate. I'm doing some digging to find her. She's married to an American and they live, I think, in Atlanta. Working on it.

I just happened to see in the local paper a Welsh Society with a contact person of H. Richard Basso (717) 761-3755.

Also, the community of Delta, PA in south central Pa. has a strong Welsh heritage.

Wow! Thanks! Wonder why I didn't ask about this sooner from all you!
