The author Kathleen Hawke spent a lifetime recording these sayings, which made up the pattern of everyday speech in the days before television and radio destroyed so much of the uniqueness of regional dialect.

This wonderful collection of Cornish saying and superstitions first appeared in 1973 and has been reprinted in numerous editions since then.
