Istor ar Brezhoneg/History of the Breton Language

Breton is a member of the Brythonic Branch of Celtic, along with Welsh and Cornish, but also, less known, Devonian and Cumbric. The Other Branch of the Celtic Language is Goidelic, with Scottish Gaelic, Irish and Manx.

British was spoken in the pre-Roman period, and has borrowed extensively from Latin (for example the word "skriva" write is from Latin SCRIBO, also "kegin" kitchen from COQUINA).

From the later maedieval period Breton was pushed back West.

Now, an estimated 300.000 people know Breton.
