Hi Marion,

A late response to your posting re the dictionary of Cornish as I am
currently in Papua New Guinea and only have access to email when in the
local town (Vanimo, in Sandaun Province).

I am very interested in buying a copy of the new Cornish dictionary, can I
do it using a credit card? Could you please advise me what the cost would
be, including mail (by cheapest method, surface I suppose?) to Australia?
If it can't be done via credit card, what method can I use to buy it? I
thought I'd ask this question on the list (as well as sending it direct to
you) as I'm sure there are others who would like to purchase it by credit

I have worked on several dictionaries, none of which have yet gotten past
various levels  of draft, so I have some inkling of how much work it takes.
So, congratulations on getting this dictionary out, I hope it sells well.
