Abstract:

The Celtic Languages 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. 

This second edition has been thoroughly revised to provide a comprehensive
and up to date account of the modern Celtic languages and their current
sociolinguistic status along with complete descriptions of the historical
languages. 

This comprehensive volume is arranged in four parts. The first part offers
a description of the typological aspects of the Celtic languages followed
by a scene setting historical account of the emergence of these languages.
Chapters devoted to Continental Celtic, Old and Middle Irish, and Old and
Middle Welsh follow. Parts two and three are devoted to linguistic
descriptions of the contemporary languages. Part two has chapters on Irish,
Scots Gaelic and Manx, while Part three covers Welsh, Breton and Cornish.
Part four is devoted to the sociolinguistic situation of the four
contemporary Celtic languages and a final chapter describes the status of
the two revived languages Cornish and Manx. 

With contributions from a variety of scholars of the highest reputation,
The Celtic Languages continues to be an invaluable tool for both students
and teachers of linguistics, especially those with an interest in typology,
language universals and the unique sociolinguistic position which the
Celtic languages occupy.
