Celtic Languages

Post by PeteC » Sat Dec 17, 2016 5:44 am

Are there enough similarities and commonalities between Welsh Cymrage, Scottish Gaelic and Irish Gaelic for all of them to be understood between groups, or at least partially understood?

I ask as in the middle of watching a series about Celtic history and geographic evolution. Pete :cheers:

Yes there are similarities and commonalities between these languages as well as with French Breton.
They all derive from the same root.

Don't forget the Cornish language, which is also Celtic in origin! It is also a recognised language of the UK.

The 2013 documentary "The Celts" is available on Amazon if interested. Free with Prime. The first 3 of 6 episodes can be found on You Tube. Pete :cheers:

Hello everybody,
Yes it seems to me that there are indeed a lot of similarities between these languages, which can facilitate learning or at least know a few words. It can always serve
