5.0 out of 5 stars I don't usually write reviews but ..., 11 Jun 2006
This review is from: Celtic: A Comparative Study (Hardcover)
Because there was no review of this book I was a bit dubious about buying it on spec. If there are any language lovers out there who are feel the same way I just want to say that it is a marvellous book which is both readable and scholarly and would suit the interested layman as well as the language professional.

The book covers the history and development of the languages and the movement of peoples that led to these with much citation from classical references etc as well as giving reasons for decline and revival and the discussion goes beyond a narrow focus to talk generally about why such things occur. I was primarily interested to know why Welsh and Gaelic are so different and the explanation is very detailed apart from the very interesting historical background actually setting out all the changes with examples. I felt duty bound to pass on the recommendation of this title which no-one who is interested in studying languages could fail to enjoy and appreciate immensely.
