(NASDAQ:AMZN) has provided quite an opportunity for young, budding authors to get a book published through Kindle Direct Publishing. Amazon has cultivated a platform that has allowed authors to publish in a number of languages to reach virtually all of the nearly 7 billion people in the world – as many of those that could have access to the Amazon Marketplace., Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)But it seems that while we presume everyone at Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has heard of a Cornish game hen, apparently Amazon has a certain discrimination against the Cornish language. Yes, the language does exist – it is not a long-dead language like believed. Language discrimination?

There is a report that Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has rejected a bilingual children’s book in its Kindle Direct Publishing platform because while one language is English, the other is Cornish. The report came out that the book, called “Matthew and the Wellington Boots,” will be available on the iTUnces platform, but was rejected for Android and Kindle devices because the Cornish language “is currently not supported by Kindle Direct Publishing.”

What is the controversy over a language that is spoken by only several thousand people in the world? It might make sense that the Cornish language is no supported, except … the Cornish language doesn’t require any special computer keys to type the alphabet. The language uses the same keys and symbols that are readily available on most English keyboards. So what is there to support or not support?

From a press release by Diglot Books: “The Cornish language which uses exactly the same alphabet as the English language has been on the rise since its recognition as a living language in 2002 under the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages, and is now spoken fluently by several thousand people.” Inc. (AMZN)Is this much ado about nothing with Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), or is this censorship? Is Amazon right to reject a book on the basis of language? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

DISCLOSURE: I own no positions and any stock mentioned.
