The Welsh Language: A History

The Welsh Language: A History

Janet Davies


This available and entire creation strains the advance of the Welsh language from its origins, which expand again a minimum of 2,500 years inside of Britain, to the current day, while approximately part one million humans all over the world communicate Welsh.
           
Janet Davies deals a wide historic survey, taking a look at Welsh-language tradition from sixth-century heroic poetry to tv and dad track within the overdue 20th century.  She considers the general public prestige of the language from the Act of Union with England of 1536 to the enactment of the Welsh Language Act in 1993, compares the prestige of Welsh with that of different minority languages all through Europe and offers a short advisor to pronunciation, dialect, and grammar.
