Feb 15, 2017 - As many viewers have noted, there are some pronunciation problems with the Irish samples in the video. Click here for a mini-video containing new and improved Irish audio samples with more authentic pronunciation: https://youtu.be/OP91sCommJw (it's about 30 seconds long). Thanks!

Mar 20, 2021 - 10:50 That's completely like the umlaut in German and Slavic languages (only vowels, though)

Vint Guitarz Says:

Mar 20, 2021 - The Irish and Scotch especially, arrogantly and incorrectly think that THEY are the original Celtic's (River Dance and all that bullshit), whereas they are actually the Mutts last of the Celts. The Celts origin as you point out is Central Europe, primarily what is known as "Slavic Europe", who now primarily speak the forced on them Slavic variants as the Slavs invaded from what is western and central Russia.

Welsh Wizzard Says:

Mar 18, 2021 - In many areas especially of North Wales, Welsh is used everywhere regularly on a daily basis, many find it easier to speak in welsh than English , it’s part of the culture, history and daily lives

truthseeker Says:

Mar 18, 2021 - How did you learn all of this?

Joel Keqani Says:

Michael H Says:

Mar 16, 2021 - Hi, I'm a Scottish Gaelic speaker from Nova Scotia. I'm from Pictou County which is not on CB. Antigonish also has some speakers.

Mar 13, 2021 - I am Berber (Amazigh) from Morocco and our language is also being suppressed and erased I call upon my Celtic brothers and sisters to fight for their unique languauge like the Basques and Catalans, fight for your language your victory is also our victory I feel a natural connection with Celtic and Basque

Donald Edward Says:

Mar 11, 2021 - You did not mention the Welsh which is spoken in Argentina. I am not sure whether some people are not bilingual in Welsh and Spanish. It is not hard to tell whether a Welshman is from the North or the South by the way his native languages influences the way he speaks English. There is a lot of Latin in Welsh because the Romans occupied a Celtic-speaking Britain for several centuries. I wonder whether the Romans got the word "Britain" from the Celts living there when they first invaded. It could have been the softening or civilizing aspect of Romano-British culture that help the Anglo-Saxos prevail against the Celts in the same way that later it was the more civilizing aspect of a long period of peace that made the Anglo-Saxonx victimes of the Norse predations.The industrial revolution in Britain and the movement of people for work that it occasioned probably did much to damage the Welsh language. Those are my thoughts on what happened to Celts in the 5th century and the Welsh language in the 19th century. Fortunately it is now growing. Rwy'n hoffi eich fideos. Diolch yn fawr, Paul.
