This comprehensive volume describes in depth all the Celtic languages from historical, structural and sociolinguistic perspectives, with individual chapters on Irish, Scottish, Gaelic, Manx, Welsh, Breton and Cornish.
Organized for ease of reference, The Celtic Languages is arranged in four parts.
The first, Historical Aspects, covers the origin and history of the Celtic languages, their spread and retreat, present-day distribution and a sketch of the extant and recently extant languages.
Parts II and III describe the structural detail of each language, including phonology, mutation, morphology, syntax, dialectology and lexis.
The final part provides wide-ranging sociolinguistic detail, such as areas of usage (in government, church, media, education, business), maintenance (institutional support offered), and prospects for survival (examination of demographic changes and how they affect these languages).

Special Features:
* Presents the first modern, comprehensive linguistic description of this important language family
* Provides a full discussion of the likely progress of Irish, Welsh and Breton
* Includes the most recent research on newly discovered Continental Celtic inscriptions
