Turning Cumbrian, I Really Think So
The GonMad Cumbrian Dictionary
The Inuit may have a hundred different words for snow, but the Cumbrians have a thousand ways to tell
you about jumping over gates. While Cumbrian still continues to be snubbed by the likes of the Altavista
translator, and it's still nearly impossible to find a decent tutor, at least one site is keeping the
flame alive. "Old Cumbrian is spoken by very few these days, so I don't want to see new Cumbrian go
the same way," he expounds. Now, thanks to his courage and perseverance, you too can learn the
appropriate way to tell someone that you jumped over a gate, are too tired to jump over gates, that
you stole a gate, or that the next person who jumps over a gate is going to get slapped.
