  1. I am a speaker of Cornish. The speakers of Cornish are spread throughout Cornwall, which extends as far as the River Tamar, whereas your graphic only shades part of Cornwall. There is an active “Yeth an Werin” conversational group in Launceston right on the border, and Cornish speakers in places such as Saltash alongside the river Tamar.
