|Chris Moseley – UNESCO Editor|
There has been a steady stream of thoughts, ideas and suggestions since publication of the third edition, including some indignation from speakers in both the Isle of Man and Cornwall. But a healthy dialogue between editors and Manx representatives has now secured the creation of two new categories under the headings ‘revived’ and ‘revitalised’.
Manx Language Officer Adrian Cain, commented, “Chris Moseley also took the opportunity to visit the Bunscoill (Manx Language Primary School) following the lecture, recognising this as a fantastic achievement and an example of what can be done to maintain endangered languages. In this sense the revival in the fortunes of Manx is a success story for the Island and one which UNESCO is now taking a keen interest in”.
