An ancient Cornish word, that has recently come back into use. It is used to describe an attractive woman, and it's roots can be traced back to various meanings, amongst them - "beautiful", "fun-loving" and "ever-young". Perhaps its most suitable modern equivalent is "Lovely", although some Cornish scholars maintain this to be an understatement.
